Aldgate Creek bridge temporary closure and detour

South Australian Regional Bridge Upgrades - Aldgate Creek bridge temporary closure and detour

Works to replace the Aldgate Creek bridge at Mylor is underway. This upgrade, being delivered by the Department for Infrastructure and Transport (the Department), will extend the life of the structure and improve safety for all road users.


As part of the project, a portion of the works will be undertaken at night and will require a temporary closure of the Aldgate Creek bridge on Strathalbyn Road from 8pm Sunday, 16 October 2022. The bridge will re-open 6am Monday, 17 October 2022, weather permitting.

A second bridge closure will also be required from 8pm Thursday, 20 October 2022. The bridge will again re-open 6am Friday, 21 October 2022, weather permitting.

How will this affect me:

During the temporary bridge closures, Strathalbyn Road will also be closed in both directions between Stock Road and Wilson Road. Speed restrictions and traffic detours will be in place. Please see map below for details.

Road users are asked to please plan ahead, allow extra travel time and take extra care when workers are on site. Observe speed limits, lane restrictions and traffic controllers when travelling through the area.

Access for emergency services will be maintained.

Access to properties will be maintained throughout the works wherever possible, with advance notice provided if there is a need to temporarily restrict driveway access.

Pedestrians and cyclists access will be maintained at all times, with traffic controllers onsite to assist.

Some noise disturbance can be expected at times while these works are completed, however the work will be managed to minimise disturbance to nearby residents and businesses, as much as practically possible.
