The Statement Below issued by Transport for NSW:
Motorists are advised that Burley Griffin Way, between the Olympic Highway at Wallendbeen and Millvale Road at Temora has closed to all traffic.
The road was closed yesterday after damage was discovered on the railway bridge and road surface.
Road and bridge inspectors are inspecting the site with more detailed assessments on the railway bridge, which is maintained by John Holland Rail, planned for later this week.
Transport for NSW is working with John Holland and Cootamundra – Gundagai Council on minimising local traffic impact until repairs are complete.
At this stage, it is anticipated the road may be closed for several weeks with more detailed information to be shared with the community as soon as possible.
While the road is closed, motorists are asked to detour via the Olympic Highway and Goldfields Way, which may add an additional 40 minutes travel time to journeys.
Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions, plan ahead, and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.
As the Olympic Highway through Wallendbeen is a PBS route, PBS vehicles should use alternative approved routes suitable for their combination.
Freight operators seeking further information about permits or alternative routes should contact Heavy Vehicle Access Coordinator Craig Gibbins on 0428 410 626.
Road freight operators can also refer to Transport for NSW’s Restricted Access Vehicle online mapping site at nswroads.work/ravmap.
Transport for NSW thanks motorists for their patience during this time.
