Old Murray Bridge Closures Next Week


The old Murray Bridge will be closed over two days next week for essential maintenance work.

On Tuesday (May 22) and Thursday (May 24) the bridge will be closed from 8:30am to 5:30pm with workers jacking up the 138 year old structure to work on the bearings as part of its annual maintenance program.

Foot traffic and cyclists may also be restricted temporarily during those times and diversions will be in place for drivers to head over the Swanport Bridge on the South Eastern Freeway.
