Bridge Rehabilitation Works, Ellerslie

Published on 05 May 2017


Work to rehabilitate the Ellerslie-Sisters Road Bridge which crosses the Stony Creek in Ellerslie is taking place.

Council completes bridge inspections, monitoring, and rehabilitation each year.  This structure has been identified for strengthening and widening works to both improve safety and lift the current restrictions and limits currently on the bridge.

Council is rehabilitating this bridge and as a result the bridge will be closed during construction, including the road closure of Ellerslie-Sisters Road between Pickfords and Fosters Lanes.

No access across this bridge is permitted during the construction period, which is estimated to be from the 8 May 2017 for approximately 6 weeks.  Detour signage will be in place throughout these works. A map of suggested detour routes is available here(PDF, 419KB).

Any inconvenience is regretted and we appreciate your patience in this matter. Please contact us if you have any queries.
