Rail Overbridge Replacement - Range Rd, Mittagong - Extension of Works Schedule

Improving the Country Regional Network

Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW) is undertaking bridge replacement and roundabout installation works on the Range Road Overbridge and adjacent intersection of Colo Street, Range Road and Railway Parade, as part of the NSW Government’s infrastructure program across the Country Regional Network.

 

Works are being completed by TfNSW’s contractor, John Holland. John Holland operate and maintain the Country Regional Network across NSW under a ten year contract with TfNSW.

 

Why is the work being completed?

Once complete the works will eliminate the long-standing load limit on the Range Road Rail Overbridge and improve safety and traffic flow at the adjacent intersection.

 

Once complete the new bridge will also include pedestrian access across the railway line.

 

Works involve:

  • Demolition of the existing Range Road Rail Overbridge;
  • Construction of a new bridge at the same location; and
  • Construction of a new roundabout at the intersection of Colo Street, Range Road and Railway Parade.

 

Extension of Work Schedule

Due to significant wet weather impacts as well and some project alterations, the project work schedule has now been extended to March 2022, subject to final approvals and weather conditions.

 

Standard site operations will run from 7.00am to 7.00pm, including weekends.
 

How will I be affected?

Range Road at the rail bridge is currently closed to all traffic and pedestrians and will remain closed until works are completed in March 2022.

 

Motorists and pedestrians are advised to use the detours marked on the following page and follow the directions of traffic controllers onsite.

Road Detours

While works are being completed the following changes will remain in:

  • The intersection of Range Road, Railway Parade and Colo Street will be closed as indicated on the map on the following page.
  • Traffic will be diverted around this intersection via Oxley Drive, Tyndall Street, Range Road and Webb Street as marked on the following page.
  • Pedestrian access via Railway Parade will be available intermittently when conditions allow. Alternatively, pedestrians are advised to detour via Range Road, Waverly Parage and Oxford Street as marked on the following page.

 

Additional Works:  Pedestrian Footpath Closure

From Tuesday 11 January 2022 to Tuesday 23 February to the pedestrian footpath between Colo St and Range Rd will be closed so that stormwater works can be completed.

 

Please Note: These works will disrupt pedestrian access and the path will be re-opened as soon as it is practicable to do so safely.

 

There is potential for noise and dust from the works, and there may be some extra vehicle and heavy machinery movements in the area.

 

We will endeavour to minimise the impact to the community wherever possible, during the works period.
