Woy Woy Rail Underpass Set to Re-open Next Week

Date

Friday, 29 July 2016

Release

The Woy Woy Road rail underpass for vehicles is set to re-open this Monday 1 August 2016 following the completion of emergency repair works by Sydney Trains over the last three months.

Sydney Trains has now finished constructing protection columns around the rail bridge’s support structures and installing new, 2.5 metre height restriction bars on both sides of the underpass.

Central Coast Council will be putting the finishing touches on Sydney Trains repair works over the weekend by installing median strips on the approaches to the underpass.

Motorists especially need to be aware that the underpass’ height limit has now been reduced to 2.5 metres. Anyone towing a caravan, carrying oversized objects on roof racks or driving a truck must use an alternate route.

Sydney Trains closed the underpass in April 2016 after a large truck attempted to use it and became wedged underneath one of the previous height restriction bars.

Both Sydney Trains and Council appreciate the community’s patience while these repair works were completed.
