Tabulam Bridge work on track for completion
13 February 2020
Work is powering ahead on the new Tabulam Bridge project over the Clarence River following the appointment of new contractor Georgiou Group last year.
Parliamentary Secretary for Regional Roads and Infrastructure Chris Gulaptis said the $48 million crossing, funded under the NSW Government's Bridges for the Bush program, was now about 75 per cent complete.
"Over the next three months, locals will see the completion of the bridge piers for the new bridge and installation of the remaining girders on the western side of the river," Mr Gulaptis said.
"Work will also continue to complete the approaches for the new bridge on both sides of the river.
"The new bridge will improve road safety and efficiency for all road users, including pedestrians and cyclists."
The new crossing of the Clarence River is expected to open to traffic by mid-year, weather permitting.
To allow work to continue on schedule, the community has been notified that the contractors will be carrying out some concrete pours outside of normal working hours.
This work will be carried out from 4am on a maximum of two days per week.
Residents can elect to be notified 24 hours in advance of any out of hours work by contacting the project team on 1800 314 530 (toll free) or by email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
