Fulton Hogan Construction has been appointed to carry out the scheme, which involves construction of a four-lane northbound bridge over the Shoalhaven River to improve traffic flow on the Princes Highway. The existing bridge will be reconfigured for southbound traffic and the old southbound bridge will be used by pedestrians and cyclists.
The Nowra Bridge project, which also includes a local link road and upgrades to intersections, is funded by the Australian and New South Wales governments.
Early work such as utility relocation and demolition of acquired properties will start in the coming weeks with major construction set to start later this year. The project is scheduled to be completed by mid-2024, weather permitting.
