Look forward to Coffs Creek bridge



AT a cost of $7 million, the new Coffs Creek bridge forms a crucial link in the Hogbin Drive Extension.

The deck construction is already complete, as are the facing panels on each side of the structure, while a traffic barrier has been installed to provide a cycleway/footpath on the eastern side.

The five-span bridge, measuring 130 metres long, will have two traffic lanes, and is due for completion by the middle of next month.

The major engineering feat has involved the delicate placement of 90 beams using a 180-tonne crane. It represents a joint partnership between Coffs Harbour City Coun- cil, Abigroup and the John Holland Group, known as the Coffs Infrastructure Alliance.

A name for the bridge will be the subject of a report to be considered by the city council.

Work continues in earnest on building the new road from Harbour Drive to Orlando Street, with the section between Albany Street and Harbour Drive already open to traffic. The new Harbour Drive roundabout is also in use.

The entire $15m Hogbin Drive project should be ready by Christmas. It has been funded equally by the Federal and State Governments and the city council to improve traffic flows throughout the city.
