Chance to upgrade local bridges

Councils throughout the New England electorate have the chance to fix local bridges that are in poor condition.

A new round of funding under the $360 million Bridges Renewal Program is now open.

Deputy Prime Minister, Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources and Member for New England, Barnaby Joyce, said councils and residents can nominate local bridges they’d like to see upgraded.
