There will be no change for northbound motorists wanting to access the Old Princes Highway. The exit will be reopened to traffic and emergency vehicles in the case of a major incident.
There will also be changes to road conditions northbound on the F6 Southern Freeway under the bridge. The left northbound lane of the F6 under the bridge will be closed on Sunday February 10 from 7pm to 5am, and then from Monday February 11 until Wednesday February 13, from 9am to 5pm.
