Brockley St bridge replacement

The council is proposing the replacement of the existing bridge over House Creek at Brockley Street, replacing it with an equivalent structure that is compliant with current standards and load limits.

The new bridge will be in the same location as the current bridge, with footpaths constructed on both sides to link existing footpath networks.

Update - Tuesday, April 2

From Tuesday, April 2 until Sunday, April 14, our contractor will conduct drainage realignment works in preparation for the replacement of the Brockley St bridge.

During this period, there will be a road closure requiring a detour on Roseland Rd, Waratah Way, Primrose Way, Lawrence St, Norah Ave, Woodland St and Charles St.

The footpath at House Creek which extends under the bridge will also be closed for this period.

We will continue to provide updates as to future road closures and detours required as part of the bridge replacement.


Frequently asked questions

Why is the council proposing these works?

Technocrete conducted a Level Three bridge inspection and determined that the Brockley Street Bridge had reached end-of-life and required replacement.

The safety and wellbeing of the community is paramount; this outcome will enhance pedestrian safety and ensure the structure’s longevity.

It will also result in the realignment of the stormwater drainage, which would clash with the new bridge abutments.

When will these works be under taken?

The design and construction contract for this project will be awarded via an open tender process, with the successful applicant expected to be selected at December’s council meeting.

The successful party will then determine the design and corresponding construction timeline.

How is this project being funded?

The Australian Government’s Bridges Renewal Program will fund about 80 per cent of this project, with the council allocating the outstanding balance.

What impact will these works have on traffic and pedestrian movement?

Traffic management will be in place during the period of construction and will be determined closer to construction.

We will give the community as much notice as possible to ensure they are prepared for changes to traffic conditions.

The council’s project delivery team are working diligently to determine the most efficient outcome for the community, taking into consideration pedestrian and traffic patterns, utilisation of the surrounding paths and school traffic.

How can I stay up to date?

The council’s website and social media channels will be updated with project information and timings.
