Two new bridges opened and two more bridges on the way

Two new bridges officially opened and news that funding has been received for two more bridges – it’s been a busy day for Kyogle Council!

Kyogle Council Mayor Cr Danielle Mulholland together with Federal Member for Page Kevin officially opened Campbell Bridge and Hyde Bridge on Lynches Creek Road this morning.

The two new concrete bridges were built at a cost of $1.9 million and were funded on a 50/50 basis by Kyogle Council and the Federal Government.
