Business as usual – except for traffic over Moffat Beach bridge
  • Monday 21 June 2010

Tooway Bridge at Moffat Beach will be reduced to one-lane controlled by traffic signals from this Wednesday (23 June) while the new bridge is constructed.

Division 2 Councillor Tim Dwyer said the temporary one-lane bridge will remain in place for the next few months.

“Traffic delays, including impacts on bus services, are expected for through-traffic between Buccleugh and Elizabeth Streets over the next few months,” Cr Dwyer said.

Cr Dwyer said that, while it is recommended that through-traffic use the Nicklin Way as an alternative route, council is encouraging people to support the area’s businesses while the works are continuing.

“Moffat Beach and Dicky Beach are very much open for business – and of course there’s an excellent mix of businesses and services,’’ he said.

“I am sure we will see people continue to visit and support the local businesses – retail, hospitality, services and medical. Visitors to the area can still access a range of great accommodation, too.”

The next full closures of the bridge are expected from 9am to 2pm on Wednesday 7 July and again on Monday 12 July. Signs will give motorists advance warning of full closures.

People who want to know how project works may affect their bus service can visit or call TransLink on 13 12 30.

Council’s website will be regularly updated with the latest information about the bridge replacement.
