News and announcements

Work to repaint the bridge started on Monday 18 June and the bridge was closed from Monday 25 June.

The temporary crossing for pedestrians and cyclists will be available for the community to use from Saturday 14 July.

The 1.2m wide path will accommodate a maximum of four people at a time.

Cyclists will need to dismount before using the crossing.

The community is asked to please follow instructions and not enter the work area.

More information about the project is available in the June project notification (PDF, 2.79Mb).

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.

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

We expect to complete the project in 12 months, weather permitting.

We will keep the community informed as the project progresses.

Review of environmental factors

The project’s review of environmental (REF) factors was displayed for public comment earlier in the year. A submissions report has been prepared and can be viewed or downloaded.
