Motorists are advised of site establishment work starting next week along the Kings Highway for the new Nelligen Bridge.
Work will start on Monday 22 February, weather permitting, and will take place from 7am to 6pm weekdays and 8am to 1pm Saturdays over several weeks to prepare for major construction of the new bridge.
Work to be carried out includes building site office compounds and storage areas, and installation of temporary fencing and survey work.
Other work occurring during this period will include cutting and filling soft soil areas, installing ground improvement piles at the eastern approach to the new bridge, and building a temporary jetty and rock platform to facilitate river access for construction equipment.
Traffic control will be in place for the safety of workers and road users, with the Kings Highway speed limit reduced to 60 km/h in the project area from Old Nelligen Road in the east to Reid Street in the west
Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.
Transport for NSW thanks road users for their patience during this time.
