The New South Wales Government is seeking qualified contractors to tender for works to build the new Spring Creek Bridge.
The new bridge will replace Spring Creek Bridge on the Kamilaroi Highway near Narrabri, aiming to improve the safety of motorists who use the bridge to travel between Narrabri and Wee Waa in the state’s north-west.
The new Spring Creek Bridge will deliver a new, wider bridge that meets modern design standards along with current and future road network requirements.
The existing bridge has been in poor condition and has been subject to heavy vehicles restrictions while essential safety work has been carried out to stabilise the structure.

Transport for NSW Regional Director West Alistair Lunn said the bridge connection is an important link for the community, including local , tourists and freight operators.
“The new bridge will be a stronger, longer-lasting structure which will improve safety for all road users and improve access for freight and agricultural operators,” Lunn said.
Tenders are now open and close in March.
Works are expected to get underway later in the year after the successful tenderer is selected and the contract awarded.
