Abbotsford Bridge to reopen Saturday, 21 August

Motorists are advised that Abbotsford Bridge at Curlwaa will reopen to traffic next weekend.

The bridge will reopen on Saturday 21 August, after being closed for six weeks to replace the lift span’s timber deck.

Night work on the bridge will then start on Monday 23 August for five weeks, weather permitting, with the bridge to be closed to traffic from Sunday to Thursday nights between 9pm and 6am.

During this time, the bridge lift span will continue to be out of operation. It will be back in operation from Saturday 25 September, weather permitting.

Small vessels will still be able to travel under the bridge. However, larger vessels should consider postponing their journey.

During night closures, traffic will be detoured via George Chaffey Bridge in Mildura, adding up to an extra 40 minutes to journeys.

Motorists are advised to plan ahead, allow extra travel time and follow the directions of signs.

Transport for NSW thanks motorists for their patience during this time.
