Road Closure: Chris Creek Navigation Channel and Road Bridge

Construction of the Chris Creek Shared User Bridge is in progress adjacent to the existing road bridge on River Road near Harbord Street, Sussex Inlet.

The Chris Creek road bridge and waterway will be closed to vehicles, pedestrians and vessels during piling works in the waterway to ensure the safety of the public.  Piling works are planned for the following dates:

Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th November 2019                                     7am to 5pm

Monday 18th, Tuesday 19th  and Wednesday 20th November    2019         7am to 5pm

When the piling works are in progress, flags and flashing buoys are in place in the channel. When the channel is open, the flags are removed to allow access to vessels.

There may possibly be changes to the times quoted above at short notice due to unforeseen circumstances. Council apologises for any inconvenience caused to the public as a result of the works and appreciates your patience and understanding.

Alternative navigation access to Sussex Inlet is possible via Badgee Creek, subject to  height restriction at Jacobs Drive bridge.

It is also possible to launch boats from boat ramps at the following locations:

Chris Creek (next to the bridge)

Lions Park, Lakehaven Drive,

Nielson Lane

Alternative vehicular access is available via Jacobs Drive, Lyons Road and Sussex Inlet Road.

Note that where navigation controls, road work speed limit signs or traffic controls are displayed or used, the controls and speed limit are enforceable and must be obeyed.
