Cudmirrah bridge opens to community ride on time

The days are getting longer and warmer and that means more walking, running and riding our bikes in the beautiful Shoalhaven.

Just in time for summer, the Springs Road Bridge at Cudmirrah has officially been launched, providing a safe access point for pedestrians and cyclists across the Swan Lake Inlet.

The bridge was funded under the Federal and State Government’s Road Safety Program and built in response to community concerns about the existing vehicular bridge.

The new pedestrian bridge allows a separated route for pedestrians and cyclists crossing the waterway. It not only provides a safe access point, the bridge is also visually appealing, melding into the local landscape.

In addition to the pedestrian bridge, the project involved the construction of a 75m raised walkway on the northern side and 130m of concrete shared user path.

During June, the 38m span steel truss bridge was lowered into place by a 450 tonne crane, creating the 2.5m wide shared user path over the Swan Lake Inlet.

The bridge and shared-user path are designed to encourage outdoor activity and create connectivity for every community member and visitor.

As we head into spring, the community will really enjoy taking in the stunning natural environment while crossing the inlet on the new bridge.

Council is thrilled to deliver this critical piece of infrastructure for Cudmirrah.
