Study on strategic Bundarra bridge


NSW examines case for upgrade of vulnerable Emu Creek bridge, which takes dozens of trucks a day

August 13, 2012

The Emu Creek bridge near Bundarra in New South Wales will undergo a feasibility study following allocated funding from the NSW Government.

The low-level bridge, which is often closed to traffic during flood events, is the only way for truck drivers as there are no alternative detours available outside of 95km via Torryburn Road and Gwydir River Road.

Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) will match Uralla Shire Council’s commitment of $34,000 in funding to ensure the study goes ahead.

The crossing is about 3.75km south of Bundarra on Thunderbolts Way which connects Uralla with Inverell via Bundarra.

Thunderbolts Way is an approved 25-metres B-double route and has about 550 vehicles travelling there each day – 30 percent of which are trucks.
