Warrandyte Bridge upgrade

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

Update – December 2018

There are now three lanes open on the Warrandyte Bridge.

In December we’ll be packing up our site facilities in preparation for the completion of the bridge upgrade.

During December, we’ll be completing:

  • Bus stop upgrade with PTV
  • Installation of traffic signage
  • Pedestrian fencing along the bridge

In late-January we’ll be returning to the area to complete the final works, which include new asphalting on the bridge and permanent line marking. These works will be complete by late-February. During these works there will be overnight temporary lane closures.  

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

Night works and bridge lane closures, 18-20 December 2018

We’ll be working overnight to complete line marking on bridge.

When we’re working

  • One night from 8pm – 5am between 18-20 December 2018

What to be aware of

  • During these works, there will be lane closures on the bridge, however traffic flow will be maintained from both directions, with assistance from on-site traffic management.
  • You will be able to continue to move across the bridge, with assistance from on-site traffic management.
  • There will be speed reductions in place around work areas to ensure the safety of the work crew, so please look out for signage.
  • There will be changed traffic conditions and possible delays because of these works, so if you are traveling through the area please plan ahead.
  • These works need to be completed in dry weather, and if required may need to be postponed to the second night or another alternative night in dry weather conditions. 

November 2018 - January 2019 works

Works will continue over this period 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
