NEW TABULAM BRIDGE PLANS ON DISPLAY
Community members are invited to view the plan for the proposed new $48 million Tabulam Bridge across the Clarence River.
Nationals Member for Lismore, Thomas George MP said the NSW Government is committed to replacing the existing bridge which has significant transport limitations.
“The crossing is the main connection for road users including heavy vehicles between the Northern Rivers and Northern Tablelands but accommodates only single lane traffic,” Mr George said.
“The proposed new bridge would have one lane in each direction and improve productivity of the road freight network access across the Clarence River.
“The new crossing would also include a separate footpath to improve pedestrian and cyclist safety and connectivity with the town.
“This is the last chance for members of the community to view the plans and have their say before work on the new bridge starts, which is expected this year.”
The community can view the plan at www.rms.nsw.gov.au/projects or by visiting 76 Victoria Street Grafton on weekdays between 9am and 4pm until Monday 3 July 2017.
