To continue building the new bridge across the Richmond River at Broadwater, Roads and Maritime Services will temporarily close the Pacific Highway at night from tonight to Tuesday 19 June.

Motorists can expect 20 minute delays between 8pm and 11pm and 40 minute delays between 11pm and 4am.

In total, 234 concrete girders will be used to build the bridge.

Nine of these will be lifted across the existing Pacific Highway over the next few days.

RMS advises motorists seek alternate routes where possible, expect delays and consider this when planning journeys during this period. For more information on this work visit rms.nsw.gov.au/w2b.
