What’s this about?

TfNSW has prepared a Review of Environmental Factors (REF) to determine the environmental and social impacts for the replacement of the Rawsonville Bridge.

Constructed in 1916, the Rawsonville Bridge is in poor condition due to age and does not meet modern design standards. The bridge is too narrow and is not suitable for use by modern-day heavy vehicles with a Higher Mass Limit load.

The Rawsonville Bridge is a major crossing of the Macquarie River, linking the Mitchell Highway to the Dubbo-Burraway Road. Closing the bridge for maintenance will result in a detour of up to 45 km for motorists to travel from one side of the bridge to the other.
