Marina bridge works will reduce noise, wear for future

IT'S been an inconvenience for drivers and pedestrians, but works on Gladstone's Marina Bridge will improve the roadway for years to come.

The works, which started on Monday, will finish on Wednesday at about 5pm.

When it reopens it will have new bearing pads that will reduce traffic noise and wear and tear from vehicles passing over the bridge, Gladstone Regional Council engineering services spokesman Rick Hansen said.

"Council is mindful of limiting disruptions and thanks those affected for their patience and understanding during these essential works," Cr Hansen said.

Meanwhile, the intersection of Gladstone-Mt Larcom and Flynn Rds will get an upgrade over the coming week.

The works will involve partial lane closures, allowing sealing works to take place.

The works will take place from 7am-5pm each day until Monday.
