Finish line in sight for Nowra Bridge Project
All lanes on the new Nowra bridge will soon open to traffic for the first time as the long-awaited project nears full completion (PDF, 196.15 KB).
Reduced congestion, shorter travel times and improved safety benefits will flow to motorists and pedestrians moving between Nowra and Bomaderry once permanent line marking is done.
The opening of all lanes is the final major milestone to be achieved as part of the $342 million Nowra Bridge project, which has been jointly funded by the Albanese and Minns Governments.
Final minor finishing work across the project, with minimal traffic impacts, will continue into 2024 with landscaping, small pavement and footpath jobs, and restoration of the site compound areas due to be completed by mid-2024 – weather permitting.
Once complete, a separate set of work will start on planning for the historic Nowra bridge’s new chapter and rehabilitation.
