Footbridges in Cootamundra, that were damaged in flooding events are to be repaired after approval has been given by NSW Government’s Resilience NSW.
The footbridges were badly damaged in the October 2022 flooding event that saw Muttama Creek break its banks and severely flood the town.
Assessments on the damage to bridges and costings had to be submitted by Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council (CGRC) to Resilience NSW for flood repair funds to be allocated.
Council has been notified that the funds are now available for the repair on footbridges to begin, and contractors have been advised to start the work as soon as materials and time permits.
The cleaning of debris and fabrication of new handrails will commence soon, with construction, concreting and fencing works to commence early May. Completion time will be approximately four weeks. (Weather permitting).
