Bridge replacement for Great Ocean Road
Construction of a stronger and wider bridge on the Great Ocean Road at Moggs Creek has begun to ensure the world-famous coastal road remains safe and accessible.
The new bridge is part of a significant package of works being delivered on the Great Ocean Road this year as part of a vital upgrade of bridge infrastructure.
This $3.97 million project is a joint investment by the Australian and Victorian governments to benefit both the local community and economy.
When complete, the new single span bridge at Moggs Creek will include a dedicated ocean-side pedestrian pathway, adjacent pedestrian refuge and cycling lanes to improve safety and access for all road users.
A temporary, pre-fabricated Bailey bridge has already been installed in preparation for major construction.
The temporary Bailey bridge will allow crews to completely demolish the existing bridge, with traffic to be moved onto the Bailey, allowing for a more efficient construction timeline.
This work follows bridge replacement projects already completed at Grey River, Separation Creek and Boggaley Creek, as well as bridge strengthening upgrades at Smythe Creek.
