Planning and development for a new bridge over Cedar Party Creek, at the entrance to Wingham, starts on Monday, September 20.
MidCoast Council's contractors will be surveying on and around Wingham Road and the Cedar Party Creek Bridge to assist in finalising the plans for the project which will see the bridge replaced on in the existing alignment.
The roadway will be restricted to a single lane under traffic control while the surveying is being undertaken. Surveyors are expected to be on site for about two weeks.
"We're pleased to be progressing with the delivery of this new bridge for the Wingham community," council's director of infrastructure and engineering, Robert Scott said.
"It's been a long time coming and it's an important part of the main entry to town. This survey work will bring us one step closer to finalising the investigation and design before we can starting building."
Road users in the area should watch out for signage and changed traffic conditions, follow directions from traffic control and drive with caution.
