$195,000 to replace bridge
ANOTHER of Bellingen Shire's old timber bridges is set to be replaced with the announcement on Friday that $195,000 of NSW Government funds was on its way to assist with the replacement of Deep Creek Bridge on the Tyringham Road, west of Dorrigo.
Shire engineer Mike Edsall said the funding was most welcome but now the pressure would be on to try to find the matching funds for the 50:50 partnership. “We have already received funds to replace the Little Murray, Cutbank Creek and Peake's Bridges in this financial year, so this project will move into the 2009/2010 financial year,” he said.
“The partnership program helps keep communities connected while improving the safety and reducing maintenance costs for councils,” Mr Daley said.
