UPCOMING WORKS, TEMPORARY ROAD CLOSURE, CHIEF STREET, BROMPTON- 26 – 27 MAY 2018

As part of the Torrens Road to River Torrens Project, the T2T Alliance will be installing a shared use path bridge across Chief Street, on the northern side of the Outer Harbor rail bridge. These works form part of the Outer Harbor Greenway extension.

The shared use path between Queen Street, Croydon and West Street, Brompton is scheduled to open in late July as part of the T2T Alliance works.

To minimise disruption to traffic, the bridge works will be undertaken between 4am Saturday 26 May and 7pm Sunday 27 May.

To safely undertake these works:

  • Chief Street will be temporarily closed between Port Road and approximately 100 meters north of First Street
  • First Street will be temporarily closed at the intersection with Chief Street.

Key activities

  • Transportation of galvanised bridge structure to site and craning the bridge structure into position.

Cranes, semi-trailers, trucks and light vehicles will be used to perform these works.

Some noise can be expected, however the work will be managed to minimise disturbance to local residents and businesses as much as possible.
