    A contract has been awarded to refurbish two bridges in WA’s Wheatbelt North Region.

    One of the bridges is located over the Brockman River on Chittering Valley Road in the Shire of Chittering, the other bridge is located over Toodyay Brook on Wattening Road in the Shire of Toodyay.

    Planning and Infrastructure Minister Alannah MacTiernan today announced that Densford Pty Ltd has been awarded the contract to refurbish the bridges at a cost of $460,000.
