Public Notice - Road Closures for Bridge Works

As part of Mitchell Shire Council’s capital works program, we’re replacing two bridges. To ensure the bridge replacement works can be completed safely and in a timely manner, we will have a number of road closures in place. Dates may change slightly depending on weather and the previous work schedule.

Emergency services agencies, school bus operators and mail contractors have been notified of the proposed road closures and will adjust their emergency response procedures for the duration of the works.

The two bridges are funded directly by Mitchell Shire Council ($410,000).

For any enquires regarding the works or proposed road closures, please contact the Engineering Services Department at Mitchell Shire Council on (03) 5734 6200. Maps are available at www.mitchellshire.vic.gov.au.
