Two More New Bridges for Narrabri Shire open to public

Two More New Bridges for Narrabri Shire open to public

The Narrabri Shire Council will benefit from today’s opening of the new Brigalow Creek and Wee Waa Lagoon Creek bridges on Pilliga Road.

This project involved the replacement of four aging timber bridges that supported freight traffic on Pilliga Road and Cypress Way in the Narrabri, Wee Waa and Pilliga areas, including the Baradine Creek Bridge, Dubbo Creek Bridge, Brigalow Creek Bridge and Wee Waa Lagoon Creek Bridge.

It was primarily funded by a $5.3 million investment from the NSW Government under the Restart NSW Resources for Regions program.
