A much-used bridge connecting the Harvey townsite to Forrest Highway has reopened to traffic after emergency works were completed. The crossing over Mangosteen Drain on Forestry Road in Uduc was reopened to vehicles on Monday after works started on its repair last week. The bridge was shut to all traffic on November 10 after an inspection found two wooden piles underneath needed to be replaced. Water Corporation regional manager Nicky Waite thanked those impacted by the shut for their patience. “Forestry Road provides important access to the town of Harvey from Forrest Highway, and we understand the importance of the route to local residents and businesses,” she said. “We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the closure, and thank the Shire of Harvey, businesses and residents for their cooperation and patience.” While traffic can now cross the bridge, speed restrictions for vehicles will remain in place while additional work continues underneath. It is anticipated remaining works will be completed in the next three to four weeks. For more information, visit www.watercorporation.com.au/harveybridge.
