Work on the new Wedderburn Bridge has officially started, with a ceremonial sod turning at the site on Wednesday 5 September

A Federal Government grant of more than $1.6 million, matched by Campbelltown City Council, will fund construction of the bridge, which will replace the existing causeway and improve wet weather accessibility to Wedderburn.

The existing low level causeway across the Georges River often floods during heavy rains, cutting off access between Wedderburn and Campbelltown, and temporarily isolating residents.

The funding was provided through the Government’s Bridges Renewal Program to deliver the project, with work expected to be completed within 12 months.

Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr George Brticevic, said the new bridge would ensure the vital road link remained open in periods of extreme weather.

“Residents of Wedderburn have called for this bridge to be built over a number of years,” he said.

“Thanks to this funding from the Federal Government’s Bridges Renewal program, Council is now able to start work on this very important local project.”

The new bridge will be constructed on the same alignment of the original bridge allowing the existing causeway to remain open during construction.
