Share Canberra's trusted news:


ZED Seselja is celebrating the completion of bridge strengthening to allow heavy vehicles to cross Sullivans Creek on Barry Drive.

Zed said the Barry Drive bridge strengthening project would improve freight transport efficiency in the Canberra region.

“Consistent with national trends, the ACT road freight task is anticipated to double in the coming 20 years.

“This project is a real boost for Canberra, expanding access for freight vehicles and improving productivity outcomes for local businesses.”

Shane Rattenbury said the Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Programme project was a good example of the Federal government and Territory Government working together.

“Projects like this one help improve connectivity but also ensure heavy freight stays on appropriate routes, which helps protect the amenity of Canberra’s neighbourhoods,” Shane said.

The project cost $957,000.
