Fixing Council Bridges Program

Lithgow City Council has received funding from the NSW Government’s Fixing Country Bridges program to replace two timber bridges within the LGA, one at Charles Street, Rydal, and the other on Red Hill Road at Upper Turon.

These timber bridges have reached the end of their useful life and will be replaced with reinforced concrete structures. The replacement of these bridges will result in the following benefits:

  • Improved safety and reliability.
  • Reduced maintenance costs, with new structures designed for 100-year life
  • Increased fire resistance, providing ongoing access in the event of bushfire.

Works are currently in the planning stage and information regarding work dates will be updated on this webpage once dates are known.

Single-lane detours will be constructed parallel to the existing bridges to ensure continuity of access.
