We are upgrading the Old Murray Bridge as part of a $3 billion investment in regional roads.

What we've done

The Marshall Liberal Government is investing close to $3 billion to build new roads in our regions and improve the maintenance of existing ones.

This includes $36 million to upgrade the Old Murray Bridge – an important route for locals and tourists through the township of Murray Bridge and a linkage between east and west. It’s also an alternative bypass route if the Swanport Bridge is closed.

Works include strengthening the piers that support it, drainage, and lighting improvements, with these works expected to increase the lifespan of the bridge by 30 years.

The upgrade will commence in 2022.

After years of Labor neglect, regional South Australians finally have a government that is creating jobs and improving infrastructure and services in the regions.

This project is part of our record $17.9 billion Building What Matters infrastructure program which is creating thousands of jobs and improving the lives of South Australians.

What it means for you

  • Tourists and locals can continue to use this important bridge for decades to come
