Presented by Kevin Bourne, Deputy Project Director of the New Bridgewater Bridge Project.

Building a new Bridgewater Bridge is Tasmania’s largest ever transport infrastructure project.

The existing Bridgewater Bridge was built in 1946 and is the fourth bridge at this site. It’s now 75 years old and becoming unsafe, unreliable and expensive to maintain. Project managers are working with the community to look at how to recognise and promote the heritage values of the crossing and the previous four bridges.
