Ashton Avenue Bridge Closure

The Main Roads Department have advised on work preparations to replace Ashton Avenue Bridge in 2018. Over the next few weeks you will notice some pre-construction activity by Western Power and the Public Transport Authority.

From late November 2017, Western Power will be on-site to relocate power services. For safety reasons, some of this work will be completed during night works on 30 November and between 10 and 15 December. This work is not expected to generate significant noise or affect power supplies.

Western Power's work also requires a complete bridge closure from 6.00pm on 27 November to 6.00am on 2 December, followed by possible night closures between 10 and 15 December.

Detours will be in place for road users, with pedestrian access maintained. Some single lane closures on the bridge should also be expected at times.
