New Birchville Bridge reopens at 5 pm today

Following a final safety inspection at 2.00 pm this afternoon, the engineer and the contractors have confirmed that the bridge will be open for public use at 5.00 pm today.

Over the next few weeks there may be times when traffic is delayed by stop/go signs as the contractors finalise changes to the services on the bridge.

The temporary road from Totara Park to Bridge Road will remain open until further notice.

Bridge users are asked to take extra care while everyone adjusts to the new road layout.
