Work underway at Merbein road bridge to improve safety and durability

29 March 2017

We are carrying out works at the McEdwards Street road bridge in Merbein, as part of our Bridge Renewal Program.

The works will improve the safety and durability of the bridge. Improvements include re-decking, strengthening works and safety barrier upgrades, to protect the safety of rail users and the general public.  

Where: The road bridge is 2.5 kilometres south-west of Merbein Station, off McSwains Road.

When: From 29 March - 12 May 2017, between 7am and 6pm on weekdays and weekends.

During the works the bridge will be closed, and traffic management plans with detours will be put in place.

We apologise for any inconvenience, and ask that you follow safety signs and instructions.  

Our Bridge Renewal Program is an annual program of works improving bridges across Victoria.
