Regional Bridges Project

The $40 million Australian Government and State Government funded Regional Bridges Upgrade Program will improve road safety and increase freight efficiency by upgrading a number of bridges across South Australia’s regional road network at various locations in the Mid-North, Riverland, Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills and Barossa Valley.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) has undertaken works to replace, strengthen and/or widen selected bridge structures, which will help accommodate the use of larger vehicle classifications. In conjunction with the implementation of a range of localised road widening and junction upgrade works, this will help achieve the strategic objectives of improved safety, productivity and efficiency in the transports of goods via heavy vehicles.
