Fixing Country Bridges

Under the Fixing Country Bridges Program, we are replacing thirty-one bridges. This funding will allow for the construction of stronger, safer and more durable bridges within the Clarence Valley. 

We will be completing the works using both internal and external bridge contractors. Construction of some bridges is underway, whilst others will commence within the following 9 months.

In conjunction with Kyogle Council, we are conducting an Expression of Interest (EOI) tendering process for the following nine bridges via this link. We are calling for suitably qualified contractors for pre-registration of prospective tenderers. Applicants are initially evaluated against published selection criteria, and those who best meet the required criteria are invited to Tender (as tender type Pre-Qualified/Invited).

Applications close on 5 October 2021.
