Road closures and restrictions
Swamp Road off Paparoa-Oakleigh Road, Paparoa, has been temporarily closed due to unforeseen bridge repairs.
Swamp Road bridge remains closed due to damage to the timber supports. The bridge goes over a railway line which is located 569 metres from Paparoa-Oakleigh Road and 2.4km from Golden Stairs Road. Traffic entering Swamp Road from the Paparoa-Oakleigh end can exit via Burke Road or turn around. A specialist bridge engineer is currently carrying out a full assessment and the complete closure (including pedestrians) will remain in place until Council is confident the bridge is structurally sound.
