Project information


Briner Bridge, which was built in 1908, is a Dare truss bridge located between the villages of Ulmarra and Tucabia on Coldstream Terrace. The single span bridge crosses the Upper Coldstream River and is one of six operable Dare truss bridges and one of two single-span Dare truss bridges in NSW.

In 2012, following stakeholder and community consultation, Roads and Maritime Services finalised a strategy for the sustainable conservation of heritage timber truss bridges. It was proposed 26 of those timber truss bridges would be retained, including Briner Bridge.

Restoring the bridge

To improve Briner Bridge’s longevity and reduce future maintenance costs, Transport for NSW upgraded the structure.

In developing plans to restore the bridge, Transport for NSW worked closely with the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage to ensure the bridge’s heritage features were retained.
