New bridge on way

Sunshine Coast Daily - - NEWS -

AN 85-YEAR-OLD tim­ber bridge car­ry­ing the D’Aguilar High­way over Kil­coy Creek will be re­placed later this year with a new 15-me­tre-long, two-lane con­crete bridge. The new bridge will im­prove road safety, road freight pro­duc­tiv­ity and com­mu­nity con­nec­tions for lo­cal mo­torists, pedes­tri­ans and cy­clists. The $5.88 mil­lion pro­ject is jointly funded, with both the Aus­tralian and Queens­land gov­ern­ments com­mit­ting $2.94 mil­lion. Con­struc­tion is ex­pected to start mid-2019.
