Transport for NSW is planning to carry out maintenance and safety improvement work to the timber rail viaduct in Gundagai. This work will be delivered as a priority.
Work will be carried out on sections of the viaduct along OI Bell Drive and Middleton Drive to improve safety for transport customers.
Recent heavy rainfall and flooding has caused sections of the historic bridge to deteriorate.
The work will reduce the risk of falling debris and allow vehicles and pedestrians to safely travel under the bridge.
Traffic changes along OI Bell Drive will be in place for the duration of the work.
A stop sign at either side of the underpass on OI Bell Drive has been installed with other signage advising transport customers of potential falling debris.
Transport is working quickly and in consultation with Cootamundra Gundagai Regional Council to carry out this work.
We will keep the community updated on future work and planning for the bridge.
