Lansdowne Bridge was included in the state wide Timber Truss strategy in 2011 and at the time of public display was marked for retention.
During the consultation period, an extensive submission was received from Goulburn Mulwaree Council requesting a new bridge be built. After discussions with council and the consideration of a range of other factors including safety, maintenance and future bridge requirements, Roads and Maritime now plans to build a new bridge at Lansdowne and remove the old bridge.
This change to the strategy for Lansdowne Bridge has been endorsed by the NSW Heritage Council. Lansdowne Bridge is a de Burgh truss bridge and Roads and Maritime recognises the importance of retaining this style of bridge for historical purposes and has committed to retaining several other examples across the state.
