Pyrenees Shire Council has successfully applied for $384,667 to upgrade and replace Bridge 110 over Wild Dog Creek on Moonambel-Warrenmang Rd in the north of the Shire.
The funding is part of the Victorian State Government’s $20 million AgriLinks Upgrade Program, which supports councils to undertake local road projects that improve access for the agriculture and food supply chain sector.
Pyrenees Shire Mayor, Cr Damian Ferrari, said that the money will help Council significantly improve an important link in the Pyrenees Shire road network.
“The current bridge over Wild Dog Creek is too narrow, doesn’t have safety rails or have the capacity to cater for modern heavy vehicles. With this funding we will be able to improve the safety of the bridge and upgrade its carrying capacity to modern standards,” Cr Ferrari said.
“The bridge replacement is part of our ongoing Council bridge renewal program, and its upgrade will greatly benefit the local community, particularly emergency workers and farmers who rely on heavy vehicles,” he said.
