What's happening now ?

Roads and Maritime Services has prepared an environmental impact statement and concept design for a new bridge over the Clarence River at Grafton. The environmental impact statement is now on exhibition.

Community comments are sought by 19 September 2014 and should be sent to the Department of Planning and Environment.
