We are now just 3 years away from having a new bridge over the Clyde River at Nelligen. This new bridge will be located slightly upstream from the existing bridge. The bridge will improve road safety and traffic efficiency for the Kings Highway users between Batemans Bay and Canberra.
Better still, there will be a wider pedestrian/cycle lane on the bridge with safety barriers between the road and footpath. This makes the walk from the Clyde River Cottage to the village of Nelligen even more enticing.
Actual construction of the bridge won’t start until 2019. In the meantime, designs and geotechnical investigations have to be completed.
The old Nelligen Bridge will be removed once the new one is operational.
