Construction works for the Rimbanda Road Causeway, located on Rimbanda Road, approximately 1.3km south of the intersection with the New England Highway, have been delayed and are now expected to start on Tuesday 18 April, 2017 (subject to weather conditions).
The construction works include demolition of the existing timber bridge and concrete causeway over Carlisle Gully and construction of a new reinforced concrete causeway with a low flow channel in its place. The project will also include excavation and reinstatement of the low flow channel immediately downstream of the existing bridge.
Works are expected to take about 20 days to complete (subject to weather conditions) and Rimbanda Road will be closed at the site of works for up to 3 weeks, from 18 April. Unfortunately it is not possible to construct a temporary side track at this location and residents will have no alternative but to detour using Rimbanda Road to the south of the bridge site, Top Congi Road and the Oxley Highway during the road closure. Signs will be erected at both the New England Highway and Oxley Highway intersections to advise motorists of the road closure before they exit the highway. Council recognises the detour will add to travel times for residents travelling to and from Armidale and we apologise for any inconvenience.
