Greens Bridge Officially Open


Quickway recently completed the construction of the $4.5 million Green Bridge near Nimbin NSW. The bridge was officially opened on 23 May 2024, with representatives from local and state government, Transport for NSW, and Quickway team members for a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

In 2023 Quickway was engaged by Lismore City Council to remove the aged wooden bridge and built its modern replacement; a concrete structure spanning 38-metres across the Goolmangar Creek. The new bridge was built with bored pier foundations, unobstructed clearance and a raised a deck height to help mitigate risks of inundation, like those experienced during the 2022 floods. The new bridge also required ~180m of new roadworks to re-align with the existing roadway.

The bridge on Stoney Chute Road was funded by the government’s Fixing Country Bridges Program and Lismore City Council. The project provided employment opportunities for over 30 local subcontractors, suppliers, and workers.

Concurrent demolition and construction sites

Originally built in 1930, the deteriorating wooden bridge required frequent repairs and was replaced due to safety concerns. Quickway played a crucial role in the project; safely demolishing the old bridge, rehabilitating the creek banks, and building the new bridge and roads.

At the ribbon cutting ceremony, Lismore City Mayor Steve Krieg highlighted the bridge’s importance as a vital connection between Kyogle and Nimbin, facilitating local farmers’ market access and improving regional connectivity. The Mayor emphasised the bridge’s increased resilience to flooding and its symbolic progress toward a more robust and connected community. The project demonstrates a commitment to sustainable and durable infrastructure, bringing tangible benefits to residents and businesses.

NSW Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Jenny Aitchison praised the project because the community has gained better safety and connectivity during emergencies, as well as improved reliability for heavy vehicle traffic, leading to enhanced transport efficiencies.
