Council has undertaken a range of works to address ageing timber bridges on the road network.

A number of successful grants from both the Federal Government and State Government have funded the renewal of existing structures and other full replacements with new concrete structures for greater serviceable life.

These improvements support general traffic movements as well as maintaining access for vital agricultural supply routes to local properties around the road network.

Some of the recent renewal projects over the past two years have included;

  • Paddys Flat Road North – Unnamed Creek Bridge
  • Paddys Flat Road North – Kangaroo Creek Bridge
  • Paddys Flat Road South – Unnamed Creek Bridge
  • Torrington Road – Deepwater River Bridge
  • Leeches Gully Road – Washbrook Creek
  • Grahams Creek Road – Grahams Creek Bridge


Proposed Projects

Council has been successful in obtaining funding approval under the New South Wales Government Fixing Country Bridges program to replace four further timber bridges.

Geotechnical investigations have commenced and design planning works will them be undertaken on the following bridges;

  • Springfield Road – Mole River Bridge
  • Tooloom Street – Acacia Creek Bridge
  • Patersons Road – Acacia Creek Bridge
  • White Swamp Road – Koreelah Creek Bridge

Construction works will be planned to commence during 2024.

Council acknowledges both the New South Wales Government and Transport NSW for their assistance under this infrastructure program.
