Upper Colo Bridge Community Information Session - 01 September 2021
Thank you to everyone who was able to contribute to the Upper Colo Bridge Community Information Session, and for the feedback you provided.
There was near unanimous support for the bridge to be replaced with a concrete bridge, and for the remaining timbers from the existing bridge to be salvaged and repurposed onsite in recognition of the wooden bridge and those who constructed it.
The recording and presentation from the meeting are now available for the community to review.
Council officers will be recommending to Councillors to proceed with the construction of a new concrete bridge. The rationale behind the concrete bridge option, compared to timber bridge options, is contained in the presentation and independent report, which are available to the public at https://www.yourhawkesbury-yoursay.com.au/fih2021.
Council anticipates that work on a concrete bridge could be completed in the second half of 2022, subject to weather.
A final decision will be made by Councillors at an upcoming Council meeting.
