Gowrie Gates Bridge Replacement

Affectionately known by Singleton locals as the ‘Hole in the Wall’, the Gowrie Gates Bridge Replacement project involved us replacing an existing twin steel, transom top rail underbridge that carries the Main Northern Rail Line (over the New England Highway). This project was a joint-funded project with ARTC/RMS.
