MOTORISTS are advised the Princes Highway at Darkes Forest will be closed for two nights from next week between Helensburgh and Bulli Tops for work on Darkes Forest Bridge.
The work will involve lifting the bridge for the removal and replacement of bridge supports. This work will reduce ongoing maintenance costs and ensure the structure remains safe.
The road will be closed from Helensburgh to Bulli Tops in both directions, between 7pm and 7am on Monday April 8 and Thursday April 11, weather permitting.
Lane closures will be in place from Sunday April 7 to Friday April 12. A reduced speed limit of 40 kmh will remain in place until further notice.
Further work and road closures will be required. The community will be updated with details in advance.
Motorists can detour via the M1 Princes Motorway or Lawrence Hargrave Drive.
Residents should approach traffic controllers for access to their properties.
Motorists are advised to allow an additional 20 minutes travel time, drive to the conditions and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.
