Abey Road Bridge Now Open

On August 9 2017 the Abey Road Bridge opened, creating an East-West connection between Abey and Brooklyn Road across Toolern Creek and into Atherstone.

The $6.1 million project reduces the traffic on Station Road and provides another access point to the Western Freeway and Melton train station.

On the City of Melton website Mayor Cr Sophie Ramsey shares her excitement. “I’ve campaigned tirelessly for over 15 years to ensure that this vital piece of transport infrastructure becomes a reality and now, seeing the bridge right before my eyes, it’s like a dream come true. The Abey Road Bridge will, without doubt, transform the way residents move around in our community. It is an amazing result for our community and one that we should all be very proud of.”
