Motorists are advised of changed traffic conditions on the Kings Highway and Wharf Street from this week.
All traffic will move onto the new Nelligen Bridge and the existing bridge will permanently close on Wednesday 22 February, weather permitting.
Lane closures, stop/slow traffic conditions and a reduced speed of 40 km/h will remain on the Kings Highway during this work. One lane in each direction will open on the new bridge.
A temporary closure of Wharf Street will also be in place from Wednesday 22 February for up to eight weeks, weather permitting. A detour via Braidwood and Reid streets will direct road users in and out of the Nelligen township during this time. This closure is required to build new pavement for the realignment of Wharf Street.
Pedestrians and cyclists will also be moved onto the new bridge as part of this work. Pedestrian access on Wharf Street will be safely maintained around the work area.
Traffic control will be in place for the safety of workers and road users.
Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions, follow the directions of signs, and allow up to an extra ten minutes travel time.
Transport for NSW thanks road users for their patience during this time.
