McFarlane Bridge works at Maclean

THE Roads and Maritime Services advises motorists of changed traffic conditions on McFarlane Bridge at Maclean from Monday August 17 for essential maintenance work.

Work will be carried out to improve the bridge piers, moveable span and metal tower to ensure the bridge remains a safe crossing for motorists using Lawrence Road and is expected to be completed in May next year, weather permitting.

Electronic message signs are in place either side of McFarlane Bridge, on the approaches to Lawrence Bluff Point ferry crossing and at Brushgrove to alert motorists of changed traffic conditions.
