The dual lane closure of Bridge Street in Muswellbrook has been extended until 6:00am tomorrow.

The initial plans stated the full closure of Bridge Street would return to a single southbound lane closure by today.

The Australian Rail Track Corporation has been undertaking major maintenance works for the Muswellbrook Bridge Replacement Project this week, which affected traffic through Muswellbrook causing congestion and delays. 

The full closure was implemented for the installation of the new bridge and removal of the center pier.

During the full closure both northbound and southbound traffic will continue to be diverted via Bell Street and Market Street.

Traffic controls will be in place to manage traffic for both closures.

Normal construction hours will continue from Saturday, 27 November 2021.
