$39 million for regional bridge upgrades

Dept of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications

The Albanese Government is continuing to improve the safety and productivity of bridges in regional areas by investing $39 million across 18 projects under the Bridges Renewal Program.

This investment includes replacing old timber bridges, improving bridge strength and traffic flow, and funding projects that will lead to higher flood immunity in areas where it’s needed most.

This funding is part of the Australian Government’s ongoing commitment of at least $85 million per year to state, territory and local governments to replace and upgrade bridges to enhance access for local communities and facilitate higher productivity vehicle access.
