New bridge to be constructed on Amberley Avenue

A small road bridge crosses a culvert.

Elected members decided in December 2023 to replace a failing culvert on Amberley Avenue with a new 12-metre single span bridge.

The existing culvert was scheduled for repairs in 2024 following a routine assessment in June 2023, which would have extended its lifespan for a brief period before requiring a full replacement. The assessment found the condition of the culvert had deteriorated more than expected, requiring us to instead bring forward the full replacement.

We’ve engaged Emetts Civil Construction to design and build the new replacement bridge.

Design work will be ongoing for the next couple of months.

Construction will take at least four months and will start soon after design work is complete. The bridge will be completely closed during construction, with detours pushing traffic to Monrad Street and Highbury Avenue.
