New Moruya Bypass Bridge Could Be A Statement About Our Community

The design of new bridge to be built for the Moruya Bypass should reflect the vibrant culture of the local community, says the Moruya Business Chamber.

The idea is already attracting strong community support with Moruya Rotary already behind the plan.

Chamber President Tim Dalrymple says there are many bridges around the world that have incorporated low cost design elements to transform them into beautiful objects.

“I saw a photo of the Dragon Bridge in Da Nang, Vietnam and was amazed how it told a story and linked the bridge to the culture of Vietnam,” he said.

“Moruya’s culture is rich and the chamber believes if our community can work with Transport for NSW early in the design process we can have the new bridge stand out on the highway as a striking statement about the Moruya district.”

Mr Dalrymple said the highway off ramps to Moruya could also link to the design theme selected for the bridge.

“The cost of the bypass will be hundreds of millions of dollars and we hope a fraction of that can be spent on including features that make it beautiful and attract travellers to call into the town,” he said.
