Country Bridge Solutions

Our country bridges are critical infrastructure in regional communities, connecting our towns and bringing our communities together.

The NSW Government has partnered with regional councils and industry to develop an innovative and cost effective bridge replacement system to better connect rural communities and to create regional employment opportunities.


Country Bridge Solutions - a fresh approach

Country Bridge Solutions (CBS) has been designed to fast track the replacement of ageing Council-owned bridges in regional areas. Its aim is to:

  • provide a simple and easy-to-build bridge solution developed by elite bridge and construction engineers
  • deliver cost savings by using standardised prefabricated components
  • use existing council resources and country manufacturing capability to replace bridges
  • provide technical manuals to guide Council staff during design and construction.

The benefits

  • Improves the connectivity of local communities.
  • Creates regional employment opportunities.
  • Improves social interaction and access for community and industry.
  • Minimal disruption to communities during construction.
  • Improves natural disaster resilience.
  • Enhances and supports Council workforces.
