Eunony Bridge Upgrade


Work on the $10.6M strengthening and widening of Wagga Wagga’s Eunony Bridge will start on 14 February resulting in the full closure of the bridge.

The full closure of the bridge reduces the safety risk to the workforce due to a limited working area. Having a single lane closure would increase the length of time to construct the new work as works would need to be undertaken on one side and then replicated on the other. The work is expected to take 22 weeks, with a scheduled re-opening date of 1 August, 2020, weather permitting.

Currently the Eunony Bridge is narrow and load limited. It cannot cater for the increased size of trucks that may need to access the Riverina Intermodal Freight and Logistics Hub (RiFL) which is being developed.

The upgraded bridge will be a key piece of infrastructure for the Wagga Wagga High Productivity Freight Route, which will provide better access to the Bomen Industrial Park and connections to the Olympic Highway.

The new widening and strengthening works will make the bridge deck stronger and wider. This will enable the load limit to be lifted so that any vehicle can travel across for years to come. The bridge will have a design life of 100 years.

Combined, the Eunony Bridge road deviation, the new Eunony Bridge, Bomen Enabling Roads and the proposed RiFL Hub, stand to have huge economic benefits for the city. Heavy vehicle traffic will also be reduced from the Wagga Wagga CBD area and the new route has the potential to save up to 36 minutes, or 21 kilometres, on a round trip.
