London Street Bridge Replacement Project

In March 2017 the Port Lincoln Council appointed contractor, BMD Constructions Pty Ltd, an Adelaide based company to manage the London Street Bridge Replacement project. 

In 2016 Council was successful in its proposal for funding under Round Two of the Australian Government's Bridges Renewal Programme with 50% of the cost (total cost $4,485,000) funded by the Bridges Renewal Programme.   

The London Street Bridge will be closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic from 9am, Tuesday 2 May until October 2017 when the work is expected to be completed.  Temporary road closures have been put into place to redirect traffic from the London Street Bridge to other intersections nearby;

  • Dublin Street/Porter Street;
  • LeBrun Street/Verran Terrace crossing;
  • Mortlock Terrace/Shepherd Avenue/Verran Terrace crossing; and
  • Pine Freezers Road crossing. 

To view maps of the road closures click detailed Detour Map 1 and Detour Map 2 or Detour overview map.

The London Street Bridge will have an unrestricted weight capacity and will be widened to a 10 metre carriageway consisting of two 3.5 metre driving lanes and two 1.5 bicycle lanes.  There will also be a 2.8 metre shared path included for better pedestrian access.  The span of the new design will shorten the bridge from 25 metres to 19 metres in length.
