A Reminder To Local Traffic
VicRoads is urging Swan Hill residents to plan ahead if they use the Swan Hill bridge after dark, with night closures set to begin tomorrow.
Bridge closures will begin tomorrow night and last until Thursday, with the 11pm to 6am closures looking to avoid causing commuter chaos.
The Nyah Bridge crossing on Speewa Road is the recommended detour route, with commuters asked to expect an extra hour's worth of travel.
The $4.5 million dollar project when completed will have strengthened the bridge to be able to remove the width restrictions and maintain its capacity to accommodate B-doubles.
VicRoads Northern Victoria Regional Director Brian Wesley says its time they got underway.
"These works at night are just short term closures to make sure we get in and get this done as quickly as possible," Wesley said.
"Where possible we ask everyone to plan their journeys to minimise any inconvenience."
