Take note of McFarlane Bridge closure times for this week

DUE to the restoration work the McFarlane Bridge at Maclean will be closed on Tuesday and Wednesday.

As part of Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) work on the bridge, which will take about 12 months to complete, weather permitting, the bridge will be closed on Tuesday and Wednesday between 9.30am and 2.30pm.

In response to community feedback and to minimise impacts the bridge will remain open every Friday.

Electronic message signs will be in place in and around the Maclean area to advise motorists of the changed traffic conditions.

An SMS service and weekly email update will also be sent out detailing the closures.

To be included in these updates please contact RMS on 131 782 or email reception.grafton.ro@rms.nsw.gov.au.

During the bridge closures, an alternative route will be available via South Arm and South Arm School roads at Brushgrove and then the Pacific Highway to Maclean.

Weekend closures will be needed towards the end of the project to complete the work. Advance notice of the closures will be provided.

Motorists are advised to plan their journey, allow extra travel time and obey all signs.

For traffic information contact the Transport Management Centre on 132 701 or visit www.livetraffic.com.
