Construction on new Charleyong bridge in NSW set to go underway
By Tom O'Sullivan on 29 November 2018
SRG Civil has been awarded the tender to deliver a new bridge across the Mongarlowe River in Charleyong, New South Wales, in replace of the old Charleyong Bridge.
The new multi-million dollar project is set to remove the existing bridge and tight unsealed curves, construct a 1-kilometre sealed approach road and a new bridge upstream of the existing bridge with improved alignment, and a new approach road to tie in with Nerriga Road immediately west of Tomboye Road intersection.
The project aims to increase safety for the local community as well as improve freight along the route, with a 100 kilometre-an-hour speed limit and wider design to make it suitable for vehicles with a higher load limit – allowing an easier, faster and safer journeys for all road users.
Funded by both the Australian and State Government, the new Charleyong Bridge is expected to open in 2020.
