A barge which housed a crane, workers and other materials used to build the new Batemans Bay Bridge, will leave for Sydney on Saturday, November 14.
The community is advised of an additional opening of the Batemans Bay Bridge on Saturday morning to allow the barge to pass through.
A lift opening is scheduled for between 8am and 9am, weather permitting, and will take up to 20 minutes.
Transport for NSW said it was required to take place during this timeframe to take advantage of favourable tidal conditions to safely transport the barge.
The lift will allow the barge to pass under the existing bridge before it is transported north to Sydney.
The barge, named AMS 1807, housed a crane, workers and other materials used to build the new bridge piers.
Transport for NSW said all vessel operators in the area should exercise extreme caution, keep a proper lookout and comply with local buoyage and signage.
The lift will take up to 20 minutes, and motorists will experience delays along the Princes Highway, the Kings Highway and other local roads.
Motorists and pedestrians are advised to plan their journeys, allow additional travel time and follow the bridge signals.
If conditions are not suitable for the lift, the community will be notified of a new date and time.
Transport for NSW thanks road and river users for their patience during this time.
