Runnyford Bridge to be replaced

A Eurobodalla bridge will be closed for seven months while a replacement bridge is built.

A section of Runnyford Road will be closed from Monday while Eurobodalla Shire Council works to replace Runnyford Bridge.

Located west of Batemans Bay, Runnyford Road will be closed from the western side of Runnyford Bridge to Mays Road until the end of October to allow the demolition and replacement of the bridge, with no access to cross the river at Runnyford for the duration of the works.

The new structure will be rebuilt as a timber bridge as the existing Bridge has deteriorated, and is incapable of carrying the heavy loads required to service the area.

The works will involve demolition of the existing timber bridge, and construction of a new structure that will allow unrestricted access by approved vehicles.

Council has advised emergency services of the closure and contingency plans are in place, with the work to be completed by November, weather permitting.
