Windsor Bridge replacement

The NSW Government is funding this project to help improve traffic flow and provide a reliable and safe crossing of the Hawkesbury River.

Windsor Bridge
The building of the bridge decks is now underway.

Updates and announcements

Work to be carried out in May 2019 includes:

Bridge construction

We will begin to launch bridge deck segments across the river. A total of ten deck segments will be poured and launched over the coming months. We will continue to build the abutment and retaining walls on the southern side of the river, as well as begin construction on the retaining wall for the future wharf carpark.

The piling in the river is complete and we have started building the bridge piers.

Utility relocations

We will install a new electrical pole in the wharf carpark to re-string powerlines that cross the river. Work on a new electrical network along Bridge Street and George Street will include installing a new pole, overhead services in George Street East, and trenching along Bridge Street.

We will install the new services under each segment of the bridge, then launch them out with each bridge segment.

Roadwork

We will carry out roadwork near the intersection of Bridge and George Streets. This work will include earthwork and building new road surfaces.

Work will commence to widen the shoulder in the project area on Wilberforce Road. This work will include:

  • new line marking
  • installing concrete barriers
  • earthworks
  • asphalting.

We will carry out some of this work at night for the safety of workers and road users.

Residents will be notified separately before any proposed noisy or night work.

Archaeological work

Archaeologists continue to work in the project area. We will continue with archaeological monitoring and salvage on Bridge Street.

Our work schedule

Work will generally be carried out during standard construction hours between 7am and 6pm, on weekdays and from 8am to 1pm on Saturday, with some extended hours on Saturday from 8am to 4pm. There will be no work on public holidays.

Additional early morning concrete pours, starting from 4am, will occur no more than two mornings per week.

How the work will affect you

There may be some noise and disruption associated with this work including vehicle movements. We will make every effort to minimise noise and disruption to the community during construction.

Temporary traffic changes will be in place to ensure the work zone is safe. Please follow the direction of traffic controllers and signs.
