Bridges Renewal Program

On 10 November 2021, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development, the Hon Barnaby Joyce MP, announced the opening of the Bridges Renewal Program (BRP) and the Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Program (HVSPP) to new applications.

The Australian Government will now consider projects on an ongoing basis with applications accepted all year round to provide increased flexibility and permit projects to be submitted when they will most benefit Australia’s bridges and heavy vehicle infrastructure.

The Australian Government is providing more than $760 million over the 10 years from 2015-16 to 2024-25, with an ongoing commitment of $85 million per year from 2025-26 to the BRP.

Applications for BRP funding are invited from state, territory and local governments. Please refer to the Program Resource web page for information about how to apply or administer your existing project.

Previous Funding rounds

This program previously accepted applications through time-limited funding rounds. Since the program commenced in 2015 five funding rounds have been undertaken.

Details of successful projects for previous rounds are available from the links below:
