Work on the Stingray Creek Bridge replacement project is nearing completion says  Port Macquarie-Hastings Council Infrastructure acting director Andrew Doig.

“With the demolition of the old bridge, removal of the temporary bridge, asphalt surfacing, new road approaches and line marking now complete,” he said. 

Mr Doig said work to remove the old southern road approach is moving into its final stages.

“Minor work to paths, landscaping, removal of the site office and remediation of compound areas  is expected to be completed in the coming weeks, weather permitting,” he said. 

“Council thanks local residents for their patience and understanding during the delivery of this significant community asset.”
