There has been decades of inaction on the Bridgewater Bridge. Some residents have even had their properties acquired to make way for a new bridge that has not even been funded.
In a cruel twist, the Hodgman Liberal Government had the gall to list a new Bridgewater Bridge in their 2017 State Budget with not a single dollar of funding attached to it.
Enough is enough. The 70-year-old Bridgewater Bridge is well past its useful life. It is part of a National Highway and a major infrastructure bottleneck. There is no safe pedestrian and cycling access between Bridgewater and the Western Shore.
Tasmanians demand action now! Have your voice heard and sign Jen Butler's petition calling on Federal and State Government's to fix the bridge!
