Funding announced to develop options for the future of Mandagery Creek Bridge
29th May 2017
Parliamentary Secretary for Western NSW, Rick Colless MLC, today announced the NSW Government has allocated $300,000 to develop options for the future of the Mandagery Creek Bridge on Henry Parkes Way in Manildra.
Mr Colless said the NSW Government had provided funding to develop future options for the crossing as part of the Bridge Building Program.
“The Mandagery Creek Bridge was built in 1930 and is in poor condition,” Mr Colless said.
“This funding will allow investigations to be carried out to determine how best to provide a longer lasting and safer bridge for all road users.
“In July Roads and Maritime Services will seek feedback from the community on the options available for the future of this crossing.
“The bridge is an important link for road users travelling on the Henry Parkes Way between Orange and Parkes and also for the Manildra local community as it links the local school with the town centre,” said Mr Colless.
