One of the projects currently being implemented as part of the Living Heritage Grants Program is conservation works to the 1890 Wollaston Bridge, Warrnambool.
This well used bridge is a key link for pedestrians crossing the Merri River and is popular with bird-watching, cycling and other recreational activities.
The timber components of the suspension bridge are failing and in need of repairs and replacement of deteriorated timbers.
As of the oldest surviving cable suspension bridges in Victoria, the Bridge is a local landmark and the local community and grant recipients Warnambool City Council are delighted with the prospect of renewing and conserving the Bridge. This will enable the Bridge to be used for many years to come.
