London Street Bridge Replacement Project

The London Street Bridge construction was completed and open to vehicular and pedestrian traffic on Wednesday 8 November 2017. 

An official opening of the Bridge will be held at the Bridge on Monday 20 November 2017 at 11am. 

The public are invited to the opening with speeches by Mr Rowan Ramsey MP, Federal Member for Grey, and Mayor Bruce Green.  The event will be held on the corner of Railway Place and London Street Bridge, and will require a temporary road closure. 

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

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 was closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic from 9am, Tuesday 2 May till Wednesday 8 November 2017.  Temporary road closures were 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.
