Bridges Renewal Program

About the program

The Australian Government will provide $420 million from the 2015 to 2016 financial year to the 2020 to 2021 financial year, with an on-going commitment of $60 million each year following to upgrade and replace bridges to enhance access for local communities and facilitate higher productivity vehicle access.

Funding rounds

Round Three

On 14 September 2017 the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, the Hon Darren Chester MP, announced the successful proposals under Round Three of the Program.

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

Round Four

The date for the opening of Round Four has not yet been decided.
