CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

12 April 2017

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that the Old Murray Bridge will be temporarily closed to traffic between 8.30am and 5.30pm on Wednesday 19 and Friday 21 April 2017 for essential maintenance works.

Jacking of the bridge will be required to undertake the majority of the work, including maintenance of the bridge bearings, to maintain the longevity of the 138 year old bridge.

An alternative route is available via the Swanport Bridge on the South Eastern Freeway. Advance signage will be in place to advise motorists of the detour.

There will also be temporary footpath closures on either side of the bridge to undertake minor maintenance works and pedestrian and cyclist access will be maintained at all times. Signage will be in place to indicate footpath closures.

Emergency services will have access to the bridge during the closures.

DPTI thanks bridge users for their patience while these important works are carried out.
