Golden Ball Bridge Detour

Traffic on the Beechworth-Wangaratta Road will be detoured as of midnight tonight due to the closure of Golden Ball Bridge.

The closure is required to remove the temporary Bailey Bridge and reinstate the bridge pavement on the south side of the bridge.

From midnight tonight until midday on Saturday (31.03.19) the bridge will be closed, and again from 6am April 5 until 6pm on April 9.

Traffic will be diverted via the Buckland Gap Road, while B-Doubles have to detour via the Beechworth-Chiltern Road.

Once re-opened, stop-and-go traffic management will be in place between 7am and 5pm with speeds set to 10km/h over the bridge.

Drivers should allow for 5-10 minute delays when traveling and signage will be in place.
