Project information


Martin Bridge is a steel truss bridge that spans the Manning River at Taree. The bridge has an overall length of 475 metres with 15 spans, 11 of which are steel trusses. The bridge was opened in 1940 and replaced a ferry service at the end of Pulteney Street, Taree.

Transport for NSW delivered the project which included repairing and repainting the existing steel on the bridge. The scope of work involved encapsulating each span to remove and dispose of existing paint and apply three coats of new paint.

Work on the project started on 11 June 2020 and was completed in December 2022.
