AMS 1803 Barge to arrive July 12th

The major barge for the Batemans Bay Bridge replacement will arrive in the Clyde River tomorrow morning for continued work on the project.

The barge, named AMS 1803 and measuring about 21 metres wide and 55 metres long, will be in the Clyde River for the duration of the project and will house a piling rig and other materials to build the new bridge piers.

Temporary changes to motorists and river users

One additional lift opening is scheduled on Friday 12 July between 6:30am and 7am, weather permitting, and will take about 15 minutes. The bridge lift will allow the first barge to pass under the existing bridge in preparation for work in the river as part of the project.

The additional lift opening may cause delays to motorists along the Princes Highway, the Kings Highway and other local roads. Motorists and pedestrians are reminded to follow the bridge signals when crossing the bridge.

All vessel operators in the area should exercise extreme caution, keep a proper lookout and comply with local buoyage and signage.

RMS thank the community for their continued patience while this important work is carried out.
