About the project

Council is conducting investigations on the William Jolly Bridge, to ensure the longevity of the carriageway.

The concrete deck will be excavated in 10 areas, to observe its condition, the depth of surfacing and the state of the original waterproofing. These small holes will then be filled with asphalt.

Project impacts

As the William Jolly Bridge is a crucial link in Brisbane’s traffic network, the works will be undertaken over three nights, between 9pm and 5am.

The bridge will remain open, however, to ensure the safety of pedestrians, cyclists, road users and project workers, the following partial closures will be in place:

  • closure of one inbound road lane and the inbound footpath for one night
  • closure of one outbound road lane and the outbound footpath for one night
  • closure of the two centre road lanes for one night.

Nearby residents may experience some noise from the use of concrete cutters and jackhammers. Temporary lighting will also be used.

Council is conscious of the potential impacts on nearby properties, and all efforts will be made to minimise these disturbances.

Timing

The works will take place between 2 and 4 August 2020, weather and construction conditions permitting. Work hours will be between 9pm and 5am, with the most noise generating activities to take place in the earlier part of the night, where possible.
