Work to start on Barney Point bridges repairs tomorrow

Work will begin on the first of three Barney Point bridges to undergo repairs tomorrow (Feb 19).

The North Coast Line and Barney Point Coal Facility Line bridges on Young Street and the Coon Street Bridge will have deck joint repairs and resurfacing works, beginning with the Young Street North Coast Line Bridge on Friday.

The bridges will be repaired consecutively with each expected to take 7-9 days to complete, weather permitting, with work on the Young Street Barney Point Coal Facility Line expected to start on February 26 and the Coon Street Bridge on March 26.

Each bridge will remain open to vehicular and pedestrian traffic under changed conditions while repairs are conducted. Traffic flow will move to a one way arrangement flowing from Toolooa Street towards Barney Street on the Young Street Bridge – North Coast Line.
