Warrandyte Bridge upgrade

We’re adding an extra lane to Warrandyte Bridge to ease traffic flow and make it safer for the community.

Warrandyte Bridge overnight bridge lane closure 19 - 20 November 2018

Overnight bridge lane closure and night works Monday 19 - Tuesday 20 November

To safely relocate temporary crash barriers, we’ll be reducing the bridge to one lane from 8pm Monday 19 November to 5am Tuesday 20 November.

How will these works impact you?

Whilst these lane closures are in place, the bridge will remain open to traffic from both directions under traffic management as we undertake these works.  Please allow extra travel time as there may be delays

The bridge will be open during the day.

November works

Works will continue throughout November as we continue construction of the bridge. We’ll be working at the following times:

  • Weekdays, 7am – 6pm
  • Saturdays, 7am – 2.30pm

The works will include:

  • installing pedestrian railing
  • upgrading the bus stop in Yarra Street

  • installing public lighting, permanent crash barriers and guard rails
  • installing traffic lights at the intersection of Research-Warrandyte Road and Kangaroo Ground – Warrandyte Road

About the project

The project includes widening the Warrandyte Bridge to add a new lane for traffic travelling southbound from North Warrandyte to Warrandyte across the Yarra River.

Other improvements we’re making include:

  • Creating a new left turn lane onto the bridge from Yarra Street
  • New footpaths, including a new shared user path on the west side of the bridge 
  • Installing traffic lights at the intersection of Kangaroo Ground-Warrandyte Road and Research-Warrandyte Road.  

We expect to complete the Warrandyte Bridge upgrade before the end of 2018.

Community Safety 

We’re continuing to work closely with emergency services and local councils throughout this project and have a comprehensive emergency management plan in place.
