Anthonys Bridge on Mistral Road at Dunbible is listed as the top priority on Council's bridge replacement program and Council officers have commenced investigations into the construction of a new concrete bridge to replace the old, timber one.

In order to construct the new bridge to align with the road corridor, the old bridge will be demolished before the new bridge is commenced.

Therefore, Council has two options for managing vehicular access during the bridge replacement:

  1. Construct a side track and temporary bridge to keep the road open during construction; or
  2. Close Mistral Road at the Stokers Road intersection and redirect traffic to an alternative route.

Council's preferred option to is to temporarily close the road as this will result in less damage to public roads, less environmental damage, less wet weather risk and less cost to the community, but before we go ahead we want to hear how this might affect you

We will take these comments into account before making the final decision.

For more information, please contact Council on (02) 6670 2400.

    What happens next:

    Rehabilitation works on Stokers Road and Bakers Road are scheduled to commence in February 2015.

    Following this, construction of the replacement bridge is expected to commence in late May 2015.

    Prior to the commencement of the bridge replacement, Council will notify residents by placing roadside signage along the approaches to the bridge, in both directions and an advertisement in the Tweed Link.  Project updates will also be published here on Your Say Tweed, so visit this page regularly to stay up to date.
