Road Closures/Speed Restrictions 

SPRING CREEK BRIDGE TRAFFIC RESTRICTION

Hilltops Council advise that traffic restrictions have been imposed on the Spring Creek Bridge on McVeigh Street which provides access to Spring Creek Road, the Spring Creek Industrial area and Whites road in Young.
 
These restrictions are required due to structural cracking of the bridge.
 
The interim restrictions that have been imposed are:

  • A 10 kmph speed limit on all vehicles using this bridge,
  • With all traffic reduced to one way and GIVE WAY controls to limit one vehicle per time travelling across this bridge
Advanced warning signs will be installed to caution approaching motorists.

Hilltops Council will construct a sidetrack detour to bypass Spring Creek Bridge until such time as it can be replaced. It is anticipated that the sidetrack will be completed with a bitumen seal surface by early February 2019 and will cater for two-way traffic flow.
 
This Bypass will divert all traffic from Spring Creek Road through to Boorowa Street by connecting Spring Creek Road to Glensloy Street, then onto Mackenzie Street through to Boorowa Street.

All Heavy Vehicle operators are encouraged to check http://m.livetraffic.rta.nsw.gov.au for further details.
 
Hilltops Council apologise for any inconvenience caused by these restrictions however these measures are absolutely necessary to maintain public safety. Further details will be provided once all changes have been put in place.
