Work begins on Monday (August 13) to protect the piers of the Sea Cliff Bridge from erosion.
Nine thousand tonnes of large rocks have been brought-in from Albion Park in readiness for the job. These will be placed around the piers at the Northern end of the bridge- forming a breakwater to protect the piers from erosion.
The RMS will also work to improve slope-stability at the northern end of the bridge.
The three and a half million dollar project is expected to continue until the end of the year.
Some traffic delays are expected between 8am and 4pm weekdays while this work is carried out.
The work also means there will be no exit for traffic from the southern end of Patterson Road at Coalcliff between 8am and 4pm on weekdays. There will be no change to traffic at the northern end of Patterson Road.
