Afton Street pedestrian bridge closure
If you walk, run or cycle around the Maribyrnong River you’ll soon notice we’re temporarily closing the Afton Street Pedestrian Bridge.
We’re working to make the bridge better, replacing the old wooden decking and railing with a more sturdy steel railing and slip resistant decking.
This will make the bridge stronger and safer for all community members.
The bridge will be closed from Monday, 2 March 2020. We’re hoping to reopen the bridge by the start of July.
In the meantime, the shortest detour is via the Raleigh Road Bridge, it’ll add around 3.5 km to your journey.
We apologise for the inconvenience but the bridge will be back and better than ever soon.
Keep an eye on our website, we’ll provide updates as the work progresses.
