What can I expect

  • Traffic access via the new Beaconsfield Parade bridge during the works
  • Heavy machinery and equipment operating onsite
  • Delivery of materials and equipment
  • Trucks and other vehicles entering and exiting the construction site may cause minor traffic delays
  • No access to Siege Street from Beaconsfield Parade
  • Limited access to the northern-end of Woolshed Road other than to local businesses and residents.
  • Temporary streetlighting in place to assist pedestrians crossing the new bridge
  • Use of generators and light towers during night works.

Traffic changes

  • Vehicles will use the new Beaconsfield Parade bridge.
  • Siege Street will become a ‘no through road’.
  • Pedestrians will use the new bridge shared user path and temporary pedestrian pathway along Siege Street. Works are continuing to complete the connecting footpaths and provide improved access to Glenrowan’s key heritage sites.
