Local councils face the growing challenge, as road authorities, of maintaining and eventually replacing ageing bridges on regional and local roads.
The NSW Government is developing an innovative and cost effective solution to enable regional councils to replace bridges on their roads.
Roads and Maritime Services is undertaking this ambitious project by utilising its expertise and collaborating with local government to address the task of replacing its deficient bridges.
The project will deliver benefits to businesses, industry and the communities of NSW by improving access, replacing deficient assets, and aligning government and industry to deliver a fit for purpose solution.
It is considered that this solution will be applicable to regional councils in other states of Australia.
