Excitement in the air as early work starts on new Tabulam Bridge
19 September 2017
The landscape of Tabulam will begin to change from today as early work starts on the new $48 million bridge across the Clarence River.
Nationals Member for Lismore, Thomas George said the NSW 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 Pty Ltd to deliver this exciting project, which will improve the way the Tabulam community travels.
“Work will be carried out on weekdays between 7am and 6pm and from 8am to 1pm on Saturdays wherever possible, and every effort will be taken to reduce the impact to the community.”
Mr George said major work on the new bridge will start in coming weeks and take about two years to complete, weather permitting.
Roads and Maritime thanks the community for their patience while work is carried out.
