The NSW Government has provided $9 million for construction of the bridge, which will provide safer and more reliable journeys on the Kings Highway at Nelligen.
The new bridge would be built upstream of the existing bridge to provide safer and more reliable journeys on the Kings Highway at Nelligen.
Improved safety for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists by providing an improved curve on the eastern side of the bridge, wider lanes and shoulders, and safety barriers between the road and footpath.
A new bridge that will have a 100 year bridge life and will provide a safe and reliable crossing of the Clyde River at Nelligen, and improved urban design around its foreshore.
