Changed Traffic Conditions For Testing Of Batemans Bay Bridge Lift Span


Motorists are advised of changed traffic conditions on the Princes Highway at Batemans Bay bridge next Tuesday for testing work to be carried out on the bridge lift span.

Work will be carried out to improve the reliability of the bridge opening system and to train the bridge operators.

Last year a full mechanical and electrical upgrade of the bridge was carried out, with ongoing upgrades completed in the past six months to improve safety.

Due to the ongoing upgrades, bridge operators complete one night’s training a month to ensure any incidents experienced with the lift system can be quickly fixed, reducing delays for motorists and marine traffic.

Training will be carried out on Tuesday 6 June between 8pm and 11pm.

Motorists are advised to plan their journey, with delays of up to 15 minutes expected as testing takes place.

Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions, and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.

Roads and Maritime Services thanks the community for its patience while work is carried out.
