May 2019 - Raleigh Bridge reopens

The Raleigh Bridge reopened to traffic on Saturday 11 May 2019.

To thank the community for their co-operation and patience during this time, locals were invited to walk across the bridge to see the new paint job up close.

Project information


Raleigh Bridge was opened in 1935, crossing the Bellinger River on Keevers Drive (the Old Pacific Highway) linking the villages of Repton and Raleigh.

To ensure the Heritage-listed bridge continues servicing the community and to minimise corrosion in the future, it needs to be repaired and repainted.

We expect to complete the project in 12 months, weather permitting.

We will keep the community informed as the project progresses.

Review of environmental factors

The project’s review of environmental (REF) factors was displayed for public comment earlier in the year. A submissions report (PDF, 5.26Mb) has been prepared and can be viewed or downloaded.
