Traffic Conditions

Night work on Old Kempsey Bridge at Kempsey

Motorists are advised of changed traffic conditions next week on Lord Street at Kempsey to carry out repair work on the Old Kempsey Bridge.

The bridge will be closed intermittently over three consecutive nights while repairs are carried out to steel joints on the bridge deck, to reduce road noise and provide a smoother ride for motorists. Closures will be for no longer than 10 minutes and access from Rudder Street will also be closed while work is carried out.

To minimise impact to motorists, work will be carried out over three nights from Tuesday 8 December from 7pm to 5am, finishing at 5am on Friday 11 December.

Traffic control, lane closures and a reduced speed limit will be in place for the safety of workers and motorists.

Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions, and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.

Transport for NSW thanks motorists for their patience during this time.
