Maintenance of Lambton Road Bridge at Broadmeadow 

What we’re doing

Bridge strengthening works will be undertaken at Lambton Road Bridge, Broadmeadow from Monday 4 February to Friday 5 April requiring closure of the footpath on the northern side of bridge.

All traffic lanes will be closed all weekend from 5am Saturday 9 March until 12am Monday 11 March. Traffic detours will be in place.

To improve rail network safety, we’re working on:

  • Footpath resurfacing works
  • Bridge strengthening works to extend service life
  • Bridge maintenance works
  • Sydney Trains is undertaking this work on behalf of NSW TrainLink.

Traffic, Pedestrian footpaths and parking
  • The footpath on the northern side of the bridge will be closed from Monday 4 February to Friday 5 April. To cross the bridge pedestrians will need to use the footpath on the southern side of the bridge. Pedestrians can walk from the southern to northern footpath via a stairway which takes them under the bridge
