Job well done!
A great turn out to officially open Turners Flat Bridge on Friday morning which looks great standing next to its older predecessor.
Kempsey Shire Mayor Liz Campbell and the Member for Cowper Pat Conaghan MP spoke, thanking the team from Waeger Constructions Pty Ltd who built the bridge as well as the Council workers who managed the project and constructed the approaches. Then Pat declared the bridge open – a great way to celebrate his birthday!
“I love a bridge opening,” said the Mayor. “It is a particular pleasure to replace the last wooden bridge over the Macleay with a stronger, wider and higher concrete bridge that will serve the community far better, especially in times of flood.”
The $4m Turners Flat Bridge was a joint project, equally funded by the Federal Bridges Renewal Program and Council.
