Deadmans Creek Bridge replacement

The Department of Roads and Maritime Services has announced that construction will soon commence on a new bridge for the Deadmans Creek crossing.

The current bridge over Deadmans Creek on Heathcote Road at Sandy Point was constructed 69 years ago, during World War II. It is narrow and does not meet current design standards.

Construction commenced 21st July 2014 .... on time!

Sandy Point/Heathcote Road intersection

SPPA have canvassed the Department of Roads and Maritime Services and state government members for some time, seeking an upgrade to the intersection of St George Cres and Heathcote Road to provide a safe exit from St George Crescent.  So far, these requests have fallen on deaf ears. 

It's disappointing but we have not been able to succeed in gett
ing the Heathcote Road / St George Cres intersection upgraded at the time of the new bridge construction. 

However, with the construction of the bridge new approaches are planned so we will wait to see the outcome.
