Following successful funding applications to both state and federal governments, Hindmarsh Shire Council has awarded the contract for construction of the new Albacutya Bridge.

Melbourne-based Ace Infrastructure Pty Ltd received the contract for the project, with is located on the Albacutya Road just south of Lake Albacutya.

Hindmarsh Shire Mayor Cr Ron Ismay said “I’m extremely pleased that we will now be able to complete the new dual-lane Albacutya Bridge.

“This will enable a further upgrade in the safety of a key road in the Shire.”

Works are expected to commence in September this year and be completed in mid-2022.

“The funding will enable a new dual lane bridge to be constructed in replacement of the old single lane bridge, as well as upgrades to the roads approaching the bridge,” Cr Ismay said.

“This will enable easier access for local farmers and tourists as the gravel bypass through the Outlet Creek bed will no longer need to be used.”
