The RTA is advising motorists of changed traffic conditions on the Spirit of

Progress Bridge at Albury for two consecutive weekends this month.

Recent inspections identified the bridge’s expansion joints, which enable

the bridge to expand and contract when the temperature changes, have

deteriorated and must be replaced.

As the replacement process is a lengthy and complex one, the RTA has

decided to carry out the work over two weekends, including at night, to

minimise disruption to motorists.

Single lane closures are required from 6pm Friday 15 October until 6am

Monday 18 October and from 6pm Friday 22 October until 6am Monday 25

October, weather permitting.

During the

work the southbound lanes will be reduced to one lane and a

width restriction of four metres will apply. 

The speed limit on the bridge and its immediate approaches will be

reduced to 40km/h. 

Minor delays may be experienced however motorists are reminded the

Lincoln Causeway is available as an alternative route.

Cyclists and pedestrians are also advised the shared pedestrian cycleway

beneath the Victorian side of the bridge will be closed during this time. 

When the weekend work has been completed the closed lanes will be re-


Motorists are asked to obey all signs including reduced speed limits and

directions from traffic controllers.

Be road work aware, slow down and take care –

road work speed limits

are enforceable.

The RTA appreciates the patience of the motorists while the work is
