Councils throughout the Riverina are being encouraged to apply for direct Federal Government funding to help fix local bridges that are in poor condition.

Local MP Michael McCormack has announced applications are open for the third round of the $360 Million dollar Bridges Renewal Programme, which will see Canberra meet up to half the cost of bridge repairs for successful projects.

In past rounds successful grants have included $9.8 Million for Wagga’s Eunony Bridge and $2.5 Million for the replacement of the Gobarralong Bridge in Gundagai.
