Bridges Renewal Program
The Bridges Renewal Program (BRP) is an Australian Government initiative to fund the upgrade and replacement of bridges to enhance access for local communities and facilitate higher productivity vehicle access.
Australian Government is providing more than $760 million over the 10 years from 2015-16 to 2024-25, with an ongoing commitment of at least $85 million per year from 2025-26.
Projects are funded in funding rounds. Since the program commenced in 2009 five funding rounds have been undertaken.
On 29 September 2020, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development, the Hon Michael McCormack MP, announced funding for 205 projects under Round Five of the BRP in accordance with the National Land Transport Act 2014.
State, territory and local governments were encouraged to submit funding proposals for projects that will upgrade road infrastructure by enhancing access for both local communities and higher productivity vehicles.
Consistent with previous rounds, projects under Round Five were selected following a competitive merit-based process.
The date for the opening of Round Six has not yet been decided. Details about the round will be available on this webpage once announced.
