Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson has announced that tenders are open to build the New South Wales Government-funded second road over rail bridge in Gunnedah.
Mr. Anderson said the bridge will be built across the Mungindi rail line, west of the Maize Mill on the Oxley Highway and connect with Warrabungle Street.
“Key features include a pedestrian footpath on the eastern side of the bridge, a new roundabout at the intersection of Oxley Highway and View Street and t-intersection at Barber Street,” he said.
He said the overpass will help improve freight connectivity and provide safer heavy vehicle access.
“The new bridge will reduce emergency service response times, improve local traffic movements and stop traffic backing up on local roads,” he said.
The route will replace the existing New Street level crossing, which will be permanently closed as part of the project.
According to Mr. Anderson, the overpass is the single biggest investment from the NSW Government in Gunnedah’s history.
