Have your say at Tooleybuc Bridge community meeting
Community members are invited to attend a community meeting on Tuesday 26 November to discuss plans to build a new bridge over the Murray River at Tooleybuc as part of the Bridges for the Bush program, John Williams The Nationals Member for Murray-Darling said.
The meeting will be held at the Tooleybuc Sporting Club on Tuesday evening between 6pm and 8pm where project team members will provide an update of the findings from the environmental analysis and preliminary route option investigations.
Mr Williams said this is good opportunity to come along, meet the project team, learn more about the project and provide feedback.
“The NSW Government has allocated an initial $8.5 million towards replacing the Tooleybuc Bridge,” Mr Williams said.
“The proposed replacement is part of the Bridges for the Bush initiative, which aims to improve freight productivity in regional areas of the state.
“The bridge is being replaced to ensure it meets the future operational requirements of the road.
“The existing bridge load limit would also be increased to better support agricultural and industrial growth in the shire.
“Roads and Maritime Services will continue to maintain the existing Tooleybuc Bridge while planning for the new bridge is carried out,” Mr Williams said.
