More bridge funding for the Wingecarribee Shire from State Government's Fixing Country Bridges Program.

Around $1.1 million dollars will be spent on Merrigang Street Bridge in Bowral and around $780,000 will be allocated for Diamond Fields Creek Bridge in Mittagong.

It follows other funding announcements for Burrawang Creek Bridge in Wildes Meadow and Ritters Creek Bridge in Meryla.

Mayor Duncan Gair is welcoming the funding and says the new bridges would require less maintenance than the old timber structures.
