  • Major repairs to Harris Bridge will improve community connectivity
  • $1.28million contract awarded to Structural Systems Pty Ltd

Transport Minister Troy Buswell today announced a $1.28million contract had been awarded to Structural Systems (Civil) Pty Ltd to undertake major bridgeworks on Brand Highway in the Wheatbelt north region.

“The work will involve deck replacement, structural and pile repairs and related timber bridge works on Harris Bridge, which is located over Caren Caren Brook,” Mr Buswell said.

“The State Government is committed to improving the safety of country roads. These works will improve community road safety as the speed limit across this area had been reduced for almost a year due to the gradual deterioration and disrepair of the bridge.

“Other benefits of this project include increasing the lifespan of the bridge and lower long-term maintenance costs.”

Work is scheduled to start this month with estimated completion by July and will be managed by Main Roads Western Australia, Wheatbelt North Region (WBN).
