TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF POLHILL ROAD

Please be advised that Polhill Road will be closed (west of the Kings Plain Road intersection) from mid-September 2017 to allow for culvert replacement works to be carried out. It is expected that these works will be completed in two (2) to three (3) days.

The road will be closed to through traffic for the entirety of the project and all traffic will be diverted via Strathbogie Road. Updates and any changes to these works will be posted on Council’s Facebook page and website.  Council will endeavour to complete these works with minimal impact on residents and please be assured that Council will accommodate any emergency situations where access is required. We regret any inconvenience that these works may cause and thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

WORKS DELAYED ON THE DEEPWATER RIVER BRIDGE ON TEN MILE ROAD

Works commenced on the western Deepwater River Bridge on the Ten Mile Road have been delayed until further notice. Initial works have identified that additional replacements of structural components will be required. Bridge timbers will be ordered for the additional works. Due to the waiting period of these materials, work will be commencing on the eastern Deepwater River Bridge on the Ten Mile Road. Traffic will be diverted along a side track for this project. Work is expected to recommence for this job midway through August 2017.

WORKS ON THE EASTERN DEEPWATER RIVER BRIDGE ON TEN MILE ROAD

The eastern Deepwater River Bridge on Ten Mile Road will be closed from midway through August. During these works traffic will be diverted along a side track adjacent to the bridge. This project will involve the full replacement of the bridge decking, kerbs, girders and headstocks, as well as some minor repairs to the abutments. It is expected that this project could run for up to six (6) weeks.

Updates and any changes to these works are posted on Council’s Facebook page also.
