    The Bundarbo Bridge Replacement in Jugiong has commenced with site establishment, tree clearing, road approach excavation and forming of the temporary work platform for the piling rig.

    Due to the extreme weather, we have been experiencing the last couple of months, the Murrumbidgee River flow has been unusually high. The Burrinjuck Dam has been releasing water more than expected for this time of year. This resulted in the contractor not being able to complete the work platform to construct the piles for the new bridge.
