Bridges Renewal Program

The Bridges Renewal Program (BRP) is an Australian Government initiative, with up to $85 million per year provided to fund the upgrade and replacement of bridges to enhance access for local communities and facilitate higher productivity vehicle access.

Applications are accepted all year round to provide increased flexibility and permit projects to be submitted when they will most benefit Australia’s bridges infrastructure.

Applications are continually assessed with recommended projects batched on a regular basis for approval by the Minister. Timing of each tranche is subject to change and is dependent on demand, however we expect tranches to close around the end of February, May, August and November each year.

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.
