MidCoast Council road crews have advised an 11 tonne load limit has been placed on Killabakh Creek Bridge, Yarratt Road near Killabakh, with a full road closure due to take place from May 23-25.
Effective immediately, the 11 tonne load limit will require heavy vehicles to detour using Comboyne Road and Shorts Road, or via Cedar Party Road. A reduced speed limit of 20 kilometres per hour will apply to general traffic continuing to use the bridge.
Crews will undertake urgent repairs on the bridge, requiring a full road closure from Tuesday May 23 at 9am, through to 4pm on Thursday May 25. Following this important maintenance, the load limit will be raised to 20 tonnes, however the 20km speed limit will remain in place.
Motorists are asked to plan travel accordingly during the closure period, and to observe all roadwork and detour signage placed in the area.

This project is part of MidCoast Council’s commitment to improving infrastructure throughout the region.
