Bridges Renewal Programme

The Australian Government will provide $360 million from 2015-16 to 2019-20, with an on-going commitment of $60 million each year following to upgrade and repair bridges to enhance access for local communities and facilitate higher productivity vehicle access.

Round Three now closed

The proposal period for Round Three of the Bridges Renewal Programme closed on 15 May 2017.

Eligible proponents under Round Three include state, territory and local governments. Consistent with the first two rounds, projects will be selected as part of a competitive merit-based process and the Australian Government will fund up to 50 per cent of the total project cost.  In an effort to allow for a wider distribution of projects, the Australian Government, under Round Three, will limit its contribution amount to $5 million per project.

The Department will confirm receipt for each proposal submitted via a return email. If you do not receive a receipt for your submission, please contact the Department on 02 6274 8040 immediately.

Announcement of successful proposals is not expected until late 2017.
