SNOWY River Shire Council has announced that the project to replace the bridge over Wullwye Creek, Dalgety Road - known as Bate's Bridge - has reached a point where the new bridge is open to traffic and all diversions along the Rockwell Road have now been removed.
Residents and local businesses are reminded that works on and around the bridge have yet to conclude and council has placed speed restrictions of 20km/h on the approaches to ensure continued safety of the workforce and travelling public.
Council has also assured residents of Rockwell Road that repairs will be carried out at the earliest opportunity. However, this will also mean the temporary causeway across Wullwye Creek will be removed and the original causeway re-instated.
Arrangements for an official opening will be announced when a date has been selected.
