Dalgety Bridge closes for essential work

Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) is continuing essential maintenance work on Dalgety Bridge as part of the NSW government's $4.5 million commitment to restoring this important bridge.

An RMS spokesperson said work to build new timber approach spans on the bridge will require full closures for eight days from Tuesday March 25.

Closures will take place from 9am to 3.30pm from Tuesday March 25 to Thursday March 27, then from Tuesday April 1 to Thursday April 3 and from Tuesday April 8 to Wednesday April 9, weather permitting.

The bridge will be opened about every two hours to allow traffic to pass through during the closures.

"Motorists travelling at other times on the Snowy River Way between Dalgety and Jindabyne will need to detour via Berridale along Dalgety Road and Jindabyne Road or be prepared to wait up to two hours for the bridge to be opened to traffic." the spokesperson said.

"Outside the bridge closure times, motorists can expect delays of up to 10 minutes during work hours from 7am to 6pm, Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm on Saturdays.

"The work is part of the NSW government's $1.54 billion budget for this year to maintain and repair roads and bridges on state and council owned networks," the spokesperson said.

Electronic message signs will be in place to provide motorists with advanced warning of the closures.

Every effort will be made to reduce noise associated with the work.

Motorists are asked to use caution when travelling through the work site and to obey all temporary signs, speed limits and traffic control measures.
