New Queensland bridge opens

Construction of the new Sir Thomas Mitchell Bridge over the Maranoa River in Queensland is now complete with the bridge opening almost a year earlier than scheduled.

The Sir Thomas Mitchell Bridge is a critical link for south-western Queensland communities, as well as the livestock and transport industries that will align with Mitchell’s main street delivering better traffic flow and safer driving conditions for motorists.

According to the Queensland Government, the new bridge will also allow the movement of Type 2 road trains, which will deliver significant economic benefits to the local freight and livestock industries.

The $16.8 million bridge is part of the Warrego Highway Roma to Mitchell project, which is jointly funded by the Federal (over $44 million) and Queensland (over $14 million) Governments.
