Froomes Road bridge sticking points remain

Castlemaine locals opposing plans to replace the town’s single-lane Froomes Road Bridge with a new double-lane structure say council staff have taken on board some of their concerns – but major sticking points remain.
Chief among these is the slated replacement of the single-lane structure with a double-lane affair.
The group began lobbying Mount Alexander Shire Council planning staff at the start of this year on learning the historic bridge in the leafy botanical gardens precinct was to be replaced with a new double lane structure.
They fear replacing the single-lane structure will make the area unsafe with more and heavier traffic prompted to use Froomes Road and the attractive precinct at faster speeds as a result. See the Mail for the latest update.
