Work being done

Works will involve ongoing piling and concrete formwork for the new bridge abutments.

Piling involves drilling deep into the ground to strengthen the new bridge foundations.

Work will also start on the approach roads either side of the bridge.

A test train will run up and down the rail line near the Seymour-Avenel Road bridge site to assess the track performance. This is required following the completion of track slew works to shift the track horizontally, and must be undertaken prior to passenger services returning to the line.

  • Construction noise during daylight hours, with mitigation measures in place
  • Business and local traffic access to Granville Drive will be maintained
  • Trucks and other vehicles entering and exiting the construction site, may cause minor traffic delays
