Bridge Renewal Program

Council has implemented a Bridge Renewal Strategy that is progressively replacing or renewing aged timber bridges throughout the Armidale region, with 32 structures identified for the program.

To date, the program has been funded through the Federal Government’s Bridges Renewal Program, the NSW Government’s Stronger Regions Fund and the NSW Government’s Fixing Country Bridges Program.
