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 July 2019 includes:

Bridge construction

We will continue to launch the bridge segments as they are constructed. In total, we will pour and launch ten deck segments over the coming months.

We will continue to build the abutment and retaining walls on the southern side of the river, as well as continue building the retaining wall for the future wharf carpark.

Construction of the pier columns in the river, will continue throughout July. The access platforms will remain throughout the launching process.

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

Work will continue near the intersection of Bridge and George Streets.

This work will involve roadwork and landscaping east of the new bridge from the George and Bridge streets intersection, downhill to The Terrace.

We will relocate concrete barriers to the north east corner of the George and Bridge streets intersection. Initial work behind the barriers will include archaeology, building new road surfaces, installing services and overhead electrical work.

On the northern side of the river, work will also continue 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, and to minimise the impact on the road network.

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

Archaeology

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.

There will also be some extended hours on Saturday from 8am to 4pm.

How the work will affect you

There may be some noise and disruption associated with this work including vehicle movements. We are continuing to 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.
