Local communities across Australia rely on their bridges
Bridges link people and jobs, children and schools, patients and hospitals and businesses and markets. Bridges literally bring communities together. Yet so many of our regional communities are struggling because of the challenge of maintaining tens of thousands of older bridges.
The need for a national Bridges Renewal Programme is illustrated by this brochure and the pictures tell the story better than any words can.
ALGA applauds the Australian Government’s commitment to a Bridges Renewal Programme as one of a number of programmes aimed at working with councils across Australia to improve local transport outcomes.
