Work to start on $14 Million Tarban Creek Bridge repair project

A major project to strengthen Tarban Creek Bridge at Hunters Hill will start next month after VSL Australia Pty Ltd was selected as the successful tenderer to deliver the project.
“Tarban Creek Bridge is an iconic structure on Sydney’s Harbour, with its complex and distinctive main arch spaning around 90 metres,” Mr Roberts said.

“The bridge spans over the creek along Burns Bay Road from Hunters Hill to Huntleys Point and has formed part of the northern approaches to the Gladesville Bridge since opening to traffic in 1965,” Mr Roberts said.
“The NSW Government has fully funded the $14 million repair project to ensure the bridge functions well into the future.

“RMS will build new piers at the end of the existing main span beams, replace concrete cross girders and install new bearings and deck joints above the new pier locations.
“Work is expected to start in September and take about 15 months to complete. Work will be carried out on weekdays from 7am to 5pm and on Saturdays from 8am to 1pm.

“Motorists and residents are advised some weekend and night work will also be needed, requiring lane closures on the bridge.
“RMS will keep residents informed in advance of work hours throughout the project.

“Some work will be carried out from barges and a central navigation channel will be maintained at all times for boats to pass under the bridge throughout the work.

“Every effort will be made to minimise the impact of noise from the work.

“For further information call RMS project manager Martin Gormley on 8849 2141 or email,” Mr Roberts said.
