As identified in Council's bridge inspection program, Watsons Bridge requires a number of repairs.

To assist in these repairs, funding has been received through Round 5 of the Federal Government's Bridge Renewal Program.

Works will include:

  • Installation of approach barriers
  • Repairs to surface corrosion of steel girders and bearing pads
  • Repairs to concrete
  • Abutment protection works
  • Repairs to the footpath and kerb
  • Replacement of the two expansion joints
  • Cleaning and painting barrier rails and infill panels

Works are scheduled to commence in late March, to be completed in late May.

During construction, traffic lights will be installed to make the bridge 'single lane only'. Minor delays can be expected. Pedestrian access will be maintained, however, at times, this may need to be a guided pedestrian crossing.

Wide loads must seek an alternate route.
