Old South Road upgrade works continue with bridge replacement

12 May, 2023

Upgrade works along Old South Road continue with construction to replace the unnamed bridge spanning Mittagong Creek set to begin on Monday 15 May 2023.

Council’s Director Service and Project Delivery, Karin Targa, welcomed the commencement of the bridge replacement.

“This bridge is a critical component of the upgrade of the Old South Road Rehabilitation Project and will bring us closer to completion,” she said.

The new bridge will have the benefit of being constructed from modern concrete and steel providing greater resilience and safety during natural disasters such as floods and heavy rain.”

Bridge replacement works will be undertaken by specialist contractors Stefanutti Construction and are expected to take eight weeks to complete, weather permitting.

During construction, nearby property owners will need to detour via Alymerton or Bong Bong Roads. This section of road remains closed to through traffic.

Stage one reconstruction works­—between Range Road and Merrigang Street—are expected to commence later this month.

Once complete, the $11.56 million Old South Road Rehabilitation Project will provide improved traffic flow, a safer and smoother ride for motorists and easier access between residential areas and town centres. View the progress video here.
