The Warrnambool City Council has welcomed $195,000 in Victorian Government funding to help preserve the historic Wollaston Bridge.

The grant was announced by Labor Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney MP, and was made available via the Living Heritage Program.

“Warrnambool is a place that is immensely proud of its heritage and the Wollaston Bridge is one of our city’s most iconic structures,” said Warrnambool Mayor Robert Anderson.

“When built, it was a private entrance for the Wollaston Estate, now it’s a key link for pedestrians as well as a place for quiet reflection, bird watching or even painting.

“I’d like to thank the Victorian Government for their support of one of our state’s most important 19th century bridges.”

The grant will be used to replace the bridge’s structural timbers.
