Midpul Bridge Closure – Update

Due to unexpected complexities with the construction of the footings for the Midpul Bridge diversion, the bridge closure has been delayed.

The bridge is currently open, and will remain so until construction begins, this is now likely the first week in January 2017.

Despite the bridge remaining open and a route available, Spokes NT still recommends avoiding the area completely and using the safer, alternate route along Temple Tce, and crossing with the assistance of traffic lights at the Temple Tce/Stuart Highway intersection.

Whilst a little further to ride, we believe this to be a much safer option.

We will post here when the bridge closure occurs.

The red line shows the recommended alternate route. This map does not accurately show the new works.
