Refurbishment of Birkenhead Bridge

I’m very pleased to announce that the State Government plans to paint the heritage-listed steel balustrades and lamp posts on the Birkenhead Bridge this coming financial year.

As local members, Susan Close MP and I have been concerned about the aesthetics of the bridge especially since the improvements provided by the loop path project.

I have asked my department to investigate what can be done to improve the visual amenity of the bridge but also help to prevent corrosion and deterioration.

The government is also considering other long-term improvements to the remainder of this historic bridge.
