Moses Crossing and Lemington Road are receiving a much needed upgrade. The scope of works includes an upgrade of the pavement on Lemington Road and bridge access on the southern side of the bridge (Jerrys Plains side). This will incorporate a concrete approach slab, concrete approach pavements and a road rehabilitation expanding from the bridge to the Golden Highway intersection. The works will also incorporate additional scour protection and signage for further safety and scour resistant improvements.
Moses Crossing is subject to regular flooding and as a result any significant rain event sees the approaches to the bridge washed away, posing both a safety risk and access risk to road users. The upgrade will minimise this risk substantially with deep concrete approaches resistant to scour damage.
As this is a single lane bridge and located within a road cutting, it is not possible, feasible or environmentally considerate to construct a temporary side track and bridge. As such the road will be closed for the duration of these works. The construction program has been tightly compressed to minimise the impact on road users.
It is envisaged that northern side works will also be completed in the coming years with no full road closure required.
Contractors KCE have been awarded the project which will be closely project managed by Singleton Council. The start date for this project was 7 May 2018 and is expected to be completed by 30 June 2018.
“NO PARKING” restrictions allow for parking for up to two minutes as long as the driver remains in, or within 3 metres, of the vehicle during the times of operation indicated on the sign.
“NO STOPPING” restrictions mean that a driver must not stop their vehicle at any point on the road or kerb, unless there is a medical or other emergency.
