Old Mill Road Bridge replacement

Released on: 10 October 2017

Released on: 10 October 2017

Works to replace the Old Mill Rd Bridge at Herons Creek will commence next week, with the existing timber bridge being replaced with a new concrete culvert structure that will improve safety for local residents and ensure the bridge remains in service for many years to come.
 
The bridge replacement will take approximately 2 weeks to fully complete, and Old Mill Rd will be closed to all traffic for 2 days commencing Tuesday 17 October.
 
The closure is necessary to allow for the safe demolition of the existing timber bridge and the installation of the new concrete culvert structure.
 
Unfortunately there are no detour routes available.
 
Following the 2 day closure Old Mill Rd will be re-opened to traffic under traffic control, and all road users are asked to exercise caution in the area.
 
Council thanks the local community for their cooperation and patience as improvements are made to the safety of our regions roads and bridges.
 
The Old Mill Rd Bridge replacement works form part of the significant bridge replacement program being rolled out across the Port Macquarie-Hastings during the 2017/18 financial year.
