Nearly Dun

From the Maitland Mercuy report:
A multi-million dollar project to upgrade one of the state’s most historic bridges is on track to be completed and opened to traffic in late October.
The NSW government is funding the upgrade to the structural capacity of Dunmore Bridge to reduce further maintenance costs.
Work on the bridge is progressing well with prefabrication of two of the three timber trusses almost complete. It is expected all three will be finished by the end of the month.
More than $3 million has been allocated for the work, which started last year.
Built in 1899, Dunmore Bridge is an example of an Allan Truss road bridge and is one of only three remaining in the state.
