Project information


The Mandagery Creek Bridge was built in 1930 and is in poor condition. The existing bridge has narrow lane widths and does not meet modern design standards. A durability assessment has identified extensive carbonation, low concrete strength and cracking.

The NSW Government is planning to replace the Mandagery Creek Bridge over the Mandagery Creek on the Henry Parkes Way at Manildra. The proposed work includes the demolition of the existing bridge and staged construction of a new bridge on the same alignment.

The new bridge would be wider than the existing structure and would provide pedestrian facilities via a footpath on the northern side of the bridge.

The bridge is an important link for road users travelling on the Henry Parkes Way between Orange and Parkes and also for the Manildra local community as it links the local residents with the town centre.


  • longer lasting, stronger bridge with a smoother ride
  • improved road user safety through wider travel lanes and improved road approaches
  • reduced ongoing maintenance costs
  • pedestrian walkway to improve pedestrian access
  • new bridge capable of taking Higher Mass Limit (HML) loading
