Timber bridges replacement

Summary

Kempsey Shire Council will replace 56 timber bridges across the Macleay Valley with concrete bridges over the next few years. The new bridges will be safer, more durable and able to withstand larger loads.

Funding

Council has secured $16 million in funding for the project from the NSW Government's Fixing Country Bridges program.

Status

Work on the bridge replacements began in 2021. For the latest updates on all bridge works in the Macleay Valley, see Council's Weekly Works Update.
