Work to be­gin on bridge up­grade

Comment News (Gosnells) - - News -

A $500,000 up­grade to the Richard­son Street Bridge, which links Mundi­jong and Ser­pen­tine, will be­gin soon.

The tim­ber struc­ture will be re­placed with steel to in­crease the bridge’s life­span and main­tain the weight load­ing of the bridge so it can con­tinue to be used by a range of ve­hi­cles.

Main Roads and the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment will fund the up­grade.

The Shire of Ser­pen­tine Jar­rah­dale funded road­works on a sec­tion of Gos­sage Road in Oldbury be­tween Kar­gotich Road and the Gos­sage Road Bridge, which started this month and are due to fin­ish in July.

“These works are im­por­tant to our road network in the Shire and we re­mind peo­ple to be pa­tient and leave ex­tra jour­ney time when trav­el­ling,” Shire Pres­i­dent John Er­ren said.
