Funding is now up for grabs under the third round of the Bridges Renewal Programme, which keeps communities connected and regional industries profitable.

Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, the Hon Darren Chester MP, said Round 3 of the $360 million Bridges Renewal Programme would accept submissions from state, territory and local governments from Friday 17 March 2017.

“By working together with governments at all levels – particularly local councils which often need a hand to get big-ticket projects underway – we are upgrading and repairing bridges in all corners of the country,” Mr Chester said.

“Better bridges enhance safety and access for local communities, and keep local businesses and the road freight sector powering on – delivering dollars into the pockets of local businesses and supporting local jobs. 

“Successful applicants can receive up to 50 per cent of the cost associated with fixing their ageing bridges, with submissions going through a competitive merit-based selection process.

“State, territory and local governments are eligible to apply for up to $5 million in Australian Government funding per project.”

 Mr Chester said proponents should discuss priorities with their local communities, industry stakeholders, Regional Development Australia committees and relevant government road agencies early in the process of compiling their proposals.

Round 3 is open for applications until 15 May 2017. Guidelines and proposal forms are now available on the Bridges Renewal Programme website.
