The local community is invited to walk across the new Lansdowne Bridge at Goulburn on Tuesday 27 August before it opens to traffic.
Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman said the community will have an opportunity to inspect the new bridge, which also features shared paths for pedestrians and cyclists as well as heritage interpretation signage.
“The new bridge and road approaches will provide additional features and benefits, including increased road user safety due to wider traffic lanes and improved road approaches,” Mrs Tuckerman said.
“The design also provides a shared path across the new bridge and a new intersection between Bungonia Road and Forbes Street to the east of the bridge.
“The completion of this work will reduce ongoing maintenance costs and provide a new asset fit for purpose for 100 years, including the provision of access for heavy vehicles.
“We thank the community for their patience while the bridge has been closed and during construction and hope they can take this opportunity to attend this event.”
Parking will be available at Goulburn Recreation Area (Gate 2) with access via Braidwood Road and a short walk from the event location. There will be no access to the event via Forbes Street.
Community members are asked to arrive from 12.30pm.
There will be limited parking for those with limited mobility – please advise when RSVPing to request access.
Light refreshments will be available at the event and prospective attendees are asked to please register online for catering at rms.events/Lansdowne-bridge.
The new bridge will open to traffic later in the day.
