We have been advised by the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) will be servicing bridges on Shiptons Flat Road and Peninsula Developmental Road (Laura – Coen) as part of maintenance works.

Bridge servicing is regularly completed to ensure the continued safety and reliability of bridges on the state-controlled road network.

The servicing works will be carried out at the below locations and times:

               Mungumby Creek Bridge, Shiptons Flat Road - 5 and 6 September 2022

               Wallaby Creek Bridge, Shiptons Flat Road - 7 and 8 September 2022

Crews will be onsite between 6:30 am and 5:30 pm. Intermittent full bridge closures will be required throughout the servicing of up to 15-minute periods throughout the day.
