Early work has started in Tabulam, New South Wales, on a $48 million bridge across the Clarence River.
Nationals Member for Lismore, Thomas George, said the New South Wales Government is funding the project as part of the Bridges for the Bush program which aims to improve road safety and traffic efficiency for motorists.
“Early work includes installing site offices at the corner of Clarence Road and Bruxner Highway, building inspections, relocating utilities and transferring large equipment,” Mr George said.
“Warning devices will also be installed along the Clarence River to let boaties know work is being carried out on the new bridge.
“Roads and Maritime Services has contracted Delaney Civil to deliver this exciting project, which will improve the way the Tabulam community travels.”
Mr George said major work on the new bridge will begin in coming weeks and take about two years to complete.
