O-Bahn City Access Project - Hackney Bridge works from Friday 17 March to 20 March 2017

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

9 March 2017

As part of the O-Bahn City Access Project, the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that both lanes on the western (Botanic Gardens) side of the Hackney Bridge will be temporarily closed from 7pm Friday 17 March to 7am Monday 20 March 2017.

The works form part of the Hackney Bridge widening and involve pouring concrete for construction of the additional north bound lane.

While the concrete pour is expected to be completed prior to Monday 20 March 2017, the western bridge is required to remain closed over the weekend, to enable the bridge to be ready for use on Monday 20 March 2017.

Northbound traffic will be detoured onto the eastern side of Hackney Bridge with one lane open in each direction.

Speed and lane restrictions will be in place for the duration of the works, with signage and traffic management in place to advise motorists of the temporary changed traffic conditions. Road users are requested to take extra care while workers are on site and adhere to traffic signage and speed restrictions.

DPTI thanks road users for their patience whilst these important works are undertaken.
