Hampden Bridge repairs, Kangaroo Valley

Work to repair damaged stonework on  Hampden Bridge will be carried out from Monday 11 March to Wednesday 13 March, weather permitting.

The bridge will be closed to all traffic between 8pm and 4am and detours will be in place. Pedestrian access will be maintained.

Road resurfacing on Moss Vale Road near Cavan Road

Work is being carried out to resurface a section of Moss Vale Road at Barrengarry, near the intersection with Cavan Road.

One lane will be closed during the work, which will be carried out between 7am and 5pm on weekdays until Friday, 1 March, weather permitting.

Community survey results

Following a trial of night closures on Moss Vale Road last year, we invited the community to give feedback on preferred times for regular maintenance work.

We thank all those who took the time to respond to our survey. More than 100 responses were received from the community and motorists.

The majority of respondents (74 per cent) expressed a preference for night closures. A number of people requested work start later than 7pm, and in response future planned maintenance work will be carried out between 8pm and 4am.

If there is a significant amount of work which cannot be completed in these working hours, it might be necessary to extend the times or days of the closures.

If you would like further information about the results of the survey please contact the project office on (02) 4222 3217 or email southernroadclosures@rms.nsw.gov.au
