Work to install large steel supporting beams under the decking of Edwards Bridge will begin on Monday, July 20.

“This work is being done to extend the life of Edwards Bridge, also known as the Stanley Street Bridge,” Director City Infrastructure Scott Cavanagh said.

“We recently reported that remedial work would be required to make the bridge, which is more than 120 years old, serviceable for a few more years before a decision is made on a long-term solution.”

Work on the bridge for the first two weeks of the project will take place underneath the bridge decking while from Monday, August 3, work will move to above the decking.

“We will have to close the bridge to vehicle traffic from Monday, August 3, while this work is carried out," Mr Cavanagh said.

“This will take up to four weeks, depending on the weather.

“The bridge will remain open to pedestrian traffic.”

The work is being carried out by local bridge builder Leon Van Kempen and the structural steel is being supplied by Warrnambool-based RA Steel.
