The Federal Member for Maranoa DVAID Littleproud is keen to see a little less Rock and Roll across the regions, well at least in our old bridge network.
“Be sure to nominate bridges in poor condition to your local council so they can be fixed with the help of Federal Government funding. “
“There are 17 local government areas in my electorate and I want to make sure our region takes advantage of this great opportunity to fix or replace ageing bridges which link our transport network.”
“Councils can get on board by nominating local bridges and residents – who would like to put forward their ideas – should get in touch with their council to find out about any bridge nomination plans to make sure we get the most out of this infrastructure funding.”
Under Round Three of the Bridges Renewal Programme, nominated projects will go through a competitive merit-based selection process with successful applicants eligible to receive up to 50% of project costs or $5 million.
Round Three is open until May 15, 2017. Guidelines and proposal forms are available at www.infrastructure.gov.au/bridges
