Clear­ing com­menced for bridge

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS - — PHILIPPE CO­QUERAND

THE Deep Creek Bridge on the Gayndah-Mun­dub­bera Road is be­ing re­placed after the tor­ren­tial rain dam­aged it in March.

North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil Mayor Rachel Cham­bers said it was a good ini­tia­tive by the govern­ment.

“It’s great to see work be­gin on this project, as part of the re­design, the width of the bridge will be in­creased to two lanes and the height of the deck will be raised by three me­tres,” Cr Cham­bers said.

“This will im­prove flood re­silience and the safety of road users at this lo­ca­tion, and with fund­ing ar­range­ments we will start the ap­proaches first.”

The project is ex­pected to be com­pleted mid June of 2018.
