New Bridgewater Bridge Project


The Bridgewater Bridge is a critical part of Tasmania’s transport and freight network. Thousands of people travel across the bridge and on the nearby local roads every day.

Building a new bridge will mean:

  • people travelling on the bridge are safer
  • there will be less congestion
  • local communities will be better connected
  • there will be more local open space
  • travel times will be more reliable and consistent
  • heavy vehicles will be more efficient and can better support the freight industry
  • cyclists and pedestrians will have safer routes
  • there will be better river access for boats
  • bus transport will be improved
  • less ongoing maintenance costs.
