About this location
The Brig O’Johnston Bridge sits over the Williams River at Clarence Town and was built in 1880 and is the oldest surviving timber truss bridge in NSW. The bridge is one of 26 bridges identified for conservation in the Roads and Maritime Timber Truss Bridge Conservation Strategy, which was developed in consultation with the Heritage Council of NSW. The strategy was developed to address the long term management of these structures and aims to establish a balance between infrastructure provision and heritage conservation. The strategy was displayed for stakeholder and community comment in 2011. Given its heritage significance the Brig O’Johnston Bridge was identified for rehabilitation to meet current vehicle load standards while preserving its heritage feature.
