Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime Services is carrying out maintenance work to ensure continued safe operation of the bridge.

We will be working between 7am and 6pm from Monday to Friday and between 8am and 1pm on Saturday and expect to complete the work by late February 2019.

The bridge will remain open to traffic during this time and we will let you know in advance if we need to do any work outside these times. There will be minimal impact to traffic. Work will be carried out from scaffolding or a platform under the bridge and will not obstruct traffic.

Pedestrian access will be maintained. On occasion, the stairs next to the bridge which provide access to the Great North Walk may be temporarily obstructed and a member of the project team will be on site to escort pedestrians, providing a safe passage around the work.
