Updates and announcements

December 2017

Roads and Maritime Services is planning to repaint the bridge in 2018. This essential work will protect the bridge from corrosion into the future and reduce ongoing maintenance costs.

To carry out this work safely and efficiently, we are proposing to the close the bridge for the duration of the work.

Background

Raleigh Bridge was opened in 1933, crossing the Bellinger River on Keevers Drive (the Old Pacific Highway) linking the villages of Repton and Raleigh.

Review of environmental factors

To ensure the Heritage-listed bridge continues servicing the community and to minimise corrosion in the future, it needs to be repaired and repainted.

A review of environmental factors (REF) is being prepared to determine the environmental and social impacts of this work. The REF will be on display for public comment early in 2018.

The community will be kept informed as the project progresses.
