Goulburn-Murray Water is upgrading three bridge sites along Murchison-Goulburn Weir Rd.

Two of the bridges are expected to be completed before Christmas while the final bridge is likely to be finished mid-January.

G-MW infrastructure delivery services general manager Warren Jose urged drivers to take particular care along these roads.

“As Christmas approaches, we’re expecting the roads to get busier,” he said.

“It is critical that drivers follow the speed restrictions in place — both to keep themselves safe, as well as the workers at the sites.”

Speed restrictions will be in place at all three sites and some of the works will require one lane to be closed for a short duration. Traffic controllers on-site will implement these restrictions.

The barrier works will make these structures safer and “bring them up to standard”, according to G-MW.

There will be low levels of dust and noise in the area during the works.
