Bridges Renewal Program

About the program

The Australian Government will provide $480 million from the 2015-2016 financial year to the 2021-2022 financial year, with an on-going commitment of $60 million each following year to upgrade and replace bridges to enhance access for local communities and facilitate higher productivity vehicle access.

Funding rounds

Round Four

Round Four of the Bridges Renewal Program was open for proposals from 07 January 2019 to 05 February 2019.

Local Governments were eligible to apply for funding for projects that will enhance access for local communities and facilitate higher productivity vehicle access.

The Australian Government will contribute up to 50 per cent of the total project cost to successful projects, up to a maximum of $700,000 for one bridge or $1.4 million for two bridges in the same local government area.

Applications are currently under assessment. Successful projects will be announced later in the year.

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