February 2024 – Work to restart on site

We are planning to re-start work in February on the Wallendbeen road-over-rail bridge over the Burley Griffin Way at Wallendbeen.

Work was previously paused due to access negotiations and contractual arrangements out of our control.

We are planning to remobilise the site from Monday 26 February with work expected from 7am to 7pm, Monday to Friday, and 7am to 1pm, Saturday, if required.

Further site establishment work is expected from Monday 4 March in preparation for the planned ARTC shutdown possession from Saturday 9 to Monday 11 March. During this period, no trains will be running, enabling the team to carry out work 24 hours a day within the rail corridor.

The project is expected to be completed in mid-2025.

Project information


Transport for NSW is building a new permanent rail bridge on Burley Griffin Way at Wallendbeen following the emergency removal of the existing bridge due to severe damage sustained during a wet weather event.

In October 2021 a temporary single-lane steel bridge was installed allowing motorists to drive the full length of Burley Griffin Way without the need for lengthy detours.

Burley Griffin Way is a key route on the network linking the Hume Highway to the Riverina and the Olympic and Newell highways. The new permanent bridge will return a two-lane crossing to motorists, improving safety and travel times on this important freight corridor.


Following a call for community feedback in 2022, Transport finalised a permanent bridge design for the road-over-rail bridge on the Burley Griffin Way at Wallendbeen.

Feedback also highlighted the community’s priority for improved pathways to help create a more connected village for all transport customers.

To allow construction of the permanent bridge to progress, we’ve adapted the bridge design to allow a dedicated pedestrian and cyclist crossing to be added at a later date if there is community support and funding available.

Meanwhile, we are investigating safe active transport options on our roads as a priority to ensure safe crossings, with focus on pedestrian and cyclist safety in a low-speed environment.

Transport will continue to work with council and the community to explore funding opportunities to improve connectivity in the village.

The Wallendbeen Bridge feedback summary report is now available to read.
