Proposed river crossing at North Richmond

To the amazement of all in the area, the announcement of a third river crossing of the Hawkesbury River between Richmond and North Richmond was a welcomed surprise recently. $7 million has been allocated in the 2018-19 budget for detailed planning of this much needed new bridge. Over the next four years the state government estimated a further $25 million would be allocated to the funding and ongoing support to make this a reality. Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said that the newly announced third river crossing would improve the lives of many Hawkesbury residents. “I have advocated strongly for a third crossing on behalf of the Hawkesbury community for a long time and this is a tremendous outcome,” Mr Perrottet said via a prepared statement.
