MEDIA INFORMATION (July 2019)

Negotiations with the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) are continuing on the $1,062,460 Kiamma Creek Bridge Replacement Project.

Upper Lachlan Shire Council’s Acting General Manager Andrew Croke said Council has requested that the RMS undertake an upgrade of the intersection of Goulburn Street and Laggan Roads, in conjunction with the bridge replacement, and are awaiting a resolution.

“These negotiations are ongoing and we hope to have an outcome shortly so construction can commence,” Mr Croke said.

“All the preliminary work, including the designs, geotechnical reports and tender documentation are complete. This is the final piece of the puzzle before construction can begin to replace the existing timber Kiamma Creek Bridge on Laggan Road with a two-lane concrete structure.”

The project is being jointly funded with $531,230 under Round 1 of the NSW Government’s Fixing Country Roads program, $450,000 under the Federal Government’s Bridges Renewal Program Round 3 and $81,230 from Upper Lachlan Shire Council.

SCOPE

  • Design and Construction of a 2-lane concrete bridge
  • Design and construction of approx. 150 m long 2-lane road approaches
