News Article Date:

There is still time to have your say on options proposed for the replacement of Edwards Bridge along Stanley Street, Warrnambool.

Edwards Bridge, built in 1894, provides critical access over the Merri River to the Port of Warrnambool, the Warrnambool Foreshore, Lake Pertobe and South Warrnambool residential area.

It is approaching the end of its useful life which is why Council is considering design options for the bridge's replacement. 

Council's budget for the construction of a new bridge is $3 million, this includes a grant of $1.5 million from the Australian Government's Bridge Renewal Program.

A number of designs for a new bridge have been considered. Each option involves different costs, which includes the cost of building the bridge and the cost of maintaining the bridge.

The options are also different aesthetically and may involve different levels of development at the planning and approvals stage to address any environmental impacts and to optimise functionality.
