Cedar Party Creek Bridge replacement

Now open for feedback. Drop in to one of our pop-up sessions, 27 April - 3 May, or watch the video and take the survey below.

As the gateway to Wingham, the Cedar Party Creek Bridge forms part of a regional road that connects communities, and provides an important freight route supporting local industry. And with an opportunity to design its replacement currently on the table, MidCoast Council’s project team is asking for feedback at a pop-up consultation, 27 April - 3 May.

  • The ageing timber bridge was built in its current form in the early 1960's and is nearing the end of its serviceable life
  • We were successful in winning $350,000 from the RestartNSW program in September last year, for investigation, feasibility and design of a replacement bridge
  • This funding has already resulted in a body of work to identify a range of different options that take into account the physical location of the new bridge, as well as technical assessment of factors that include:
    • its ability to withstand future flood events,
    • its interaction with the level rail crossing, and
    • its ability to improve the flow of traffic, including heavy vehicles, into the Wingham town centre.
  • These options form the basis of community consultation with Wingham locals and the 10,000 motorists that use the bridge every day, where we aim to finalise one preferred option.
