Project information

Essential Investigation work

Transport for NSW is carrying out some essential investigation work on the Heritage Rail Bridge, located over Lavender Street. This investigation work will not be intrusive and will be carried out during the day between Monday to Friday 7am to 6pm. We expect this work to be completed in early 2022.

To facilitate access to the bridge for the investigation work, we will be installing some scaffolding on either side of the bridge from Sunday 28 November to Thursday 2 December, weather permitting. This work is not expected to be noisy and will take place from 8pm – 5am each night. The location of the scaffold will not impact pedestrian access or vegetation adjacent to the bridge.

Thank you for your patience while we carry out this important work.
