Kealy calls for funding for Albacutya Bridge
Member for Lowan Emma Kealy is calling on the State Government to provide funding to replace the Albacutya Bridge near Rainbow.

“The Albacutya Bridge is almost one hundred years old and at risk of closure due to age related structural damage”, Ms Kealy said.

The load limit of the 96-year-old bridge was significantly reduced in 2016, causing diversions and significant additional travel for heavy vehicles.

“This bridge is a critical link for farmers, gypsum pit operators, school buses and tourists”, Ms Kealy said.

“$3.3 million is urgently required by the Hindmarsh Shire Council to replace the bridge, once again allowing this important transport route to be used by heavy vehicles.

Ms Kealy said that the Government has scrapped the Nationals’ Country Roads and Bridges fund.

She is calling on the State Government to immediately provide the funds required to rebuild the bridge before next grain season.
