Bridge Renewal Program

Council’s 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 and the NSW Government’s Stronger Regions Fund.  

Works Completed:

Pipeclay Gully Bridge –Weirs Road

Branch Creek Bridge – Lower Creek Road

1st Culvert - Herbert Park Road

Station Creek Bridge (site locally known as House Creek) - Wongwibinda Road

Maiden Creek Bridge – Wongwibinda Road

Hiscox Creek Bridge - Puddledock Road

Abington Creek Bridge – Boorolong Road

Boundary Creek Bridge – Rockvale Road

Wollomombi River Bridge – Rockvale Road


Bridges to be replaced in early August 2020:

Site preparations get underway for the replacement of Pint Pot Bridge, on Rockvale Road.

Council will replace the ageing timber bridge with a concrete structure to improve traffic safety and remove the need for a load limit on the bridge.

Construction of a side track will begin during the last week of October and traffic will be diverted once the detour is in place.

The project is scheduled to be completed by February 2021.

Council’s Bridge Renewal Program also includes the replacement of Dumaresq Creek Bridge on Cookes Road, which is expected to start in early 2021.
