Replacement of Frame Drive Bridge Abermain is a step closer with preparation works starting on site.

Replacement of Frame Drive Bridge Abermain is a step closer with preparation works starting on site.

Ausgrid approval is currently being sought for relocation of significant overhead power lines adjacent to the old bridge.    

Other site preparations, including relocation of Telstra services are due to commence in the coming month.  

A concept design has also been completed for a new bridge that will provide an open load limit and two way travel, with pedestrian walkways on both sides.   

The new bridge will be low maintenance with a long life span.   

Council will soon be calling for a design and construct tender for the detailed design, with installation of a new structure to commence in late 2016.  

To complete the upgrade, progressive road works will be undertaken on Frame Drive following the bridge installation.  

Up to date project information is available for motorists and the local community on our website.

Council understands the impact the current closure is having on the community, however asks residents and motorists to remain patient as we work towards a solution that is safe, suitable and permanent.  

continue to take care on our roads and drive responsibly.
