Clyde Street west boat ramp temporary closures for segment deliveries and lifting onto barges from 25 May to August 2020
Transport for NSW will deliver some concrete bridge segments to Clyde Street west boat ramp and unload them onto barges near the Princes Highway in Batemans Bay.
To enable the safe delivery and unloading of 12 concrete segments for bridge construction, some temporary closures of the Clyde Street west boat ramp will take place near the intersection of the Princes Highway as part of the Batemans Bay Bridge replacement project.
Segment deliveries from the pre-cast facility south of Mogo into Batemans Bay are continuing between sunrise and sunset, outside of peak traffic times. Some of the segments are too large to be transported across the existing Batemans Bay Bridge and must be delivered to the southern foreshore’s Clyde Street boat ramp, and then transported by barge to be lifted onto the new bridge.
The Clyde Street boat ramp will be closed for up to 90 minutes on 12 occasions from 25 May to August 2020 to allow for the safe delivery and unloading of marine bridge segments, weather permitting.
Weather permitting, the planned timeframes when the segment deliveries are expected to occur are:
• Four times in late May and June
• Four times in mid July
• Four times in late July.
Members of the public are encouraged to call 1800 879 119 or email BatemansBayBridge@jhg.com.au to receive mobile phone text messages with the dates and times of temporary boat ramp closures.
River users who frequently use the Clyde Street boat ramp will be provided with additional notification two days before each time the boat ramp is closed. Boat ramp signage will also be in place advising visitors of the temporary closures.
River users may also use Hanging Rock and Nelligen boat ramps as alternatives during these temporary closures. River users are also advised Hanging Rock boat ramp is an open water boat ramp and to exercise appropriate caution with appropriate safety equipment.
Traffic control will be in place to manage traffic, pedestrians and cyclists access during the closures. Please refer to the map below for the location of the Clyde Street boat ramp at Batemans Bay.
