Lawrence Street bridge


We will be undertaking works in 2020 to replace the Lawrence St bridge over House Creek and reconstruct the approaches. 

The bridge, which is more than 50 years old, will be raised to allow the shared pathway that crosses Lawrence St to pass underneath the bridge, making it safer for pedestrians and cyclists using the House Creek path network. It will also improve the flood capacity of the bridge.

There will be disruptions while works are taking place and more information will be provided closer to work starting late-2020. The works are expected to take up to 16 weeks to complete. 

Alternative routes around the crossing point will include Brockley St, Melbourne Rd and Woodland St and detours will be well sign-posted.
