Upcoming review of our district's bridges
Many of our bridges are nearing the end of their life. A significant number of these bridges are located on low volume roads where alternative routes exist and the economic viability of their replacement needs to be considered. We will be undertaking more detailed structural inspections and impact assessments within the coming three-year period to inform community discussion regarding the shape of our network in the future.
