Bridges Renewal Programme
The Australian Government has committed $300 million to the Bridges Renewal Programme from 2015-16 to 2018-19. In the 2016-17 Federal Budget this was extended by $60 million per year from 2019-20. The objectives of the programme are to upgrade and repair bridges to enhance access for local communities and facilitate higher productivity vehicle access.
Applying for Bridges Renewal Programme Funding
The Bridges Renewal Programme is currently closed for applications. Round Three will be open later in 2016.
The Australian Government will contribute a maximum of fifty per cent of the total project cost. Projects are selected through a competitive, merit based process. Proponents are encouraged to consult with industry and community more broadly on potential projects to ensure industry priorities and community views are considered in the development of proposals.
Payments for all successful projects are made through National Partnership Agreements to state/territory governments.
On 18 January 2016, the Australian Government announced the successful Round Two proposals.
