Members of the Christensen family joined Kyogle Council Mayor Danielle Mulholland and Member for Page Kevin Hogan to formally open the new Christensen Bridge on Afterlee Road last week.
Council received $311,500 through the Federal Government’s Bridge Renewal Program to construct the new steel truss bridge. It replaces an old timber bridge.
The new bridge will provide improved access to residents, local businesses, agricultural producers and tourists visiting the Murray Scrub World Heritage listed National Park and Toonumbar Dam.
About 30 people including Kyogle Council Deputy Mayor John Burley, students from Afterlee Public School, local residents and Council staff attended the opening.
