$220M EARLY WORKS CONTRACT AWARDED FOR NEW DUBBO BRIDGE
Abergeldie has been awarded an early works construction contract that forms part of the New Dubbo Bridge project in New South Wales.
The new 660 metre bridge over the Macquarie River will ease congestion and enhance reliable access through Dubbo during flood events. It will connect the western side of the Macquarie River to River Street, travelling over the flood plain west of the river.
The project will include:
- New and upgraded intersections at Thompson Street, Whylandra Street, and the Newell Highway
- Intersections at Bourke Street and River Street will also be upgraded
- A complete realignment and reconstruction at the northern end of Darling Street
- Moving the alignment to intersect with Brisbane Street instead of River Street
The new Dubbo Bridge and associated works form part of the wider $1.7billion Newell Highway Upgrade.
It is expected to be open to traffic in early 2023.
