About the project

The old timber bridge was nearing the end of its serviceable lifespan and in order to maintain a safe crossing, the bridge needed to be replaced with a new shared pedestrian and cyclist crossing.

Council installed a new 11-metre long, 3.6-metre wide steel bridge to replace the existing bridge with connection to the existing pathways in Cubberla Creek Reserve.

The new bridge has a steel truss design and will maintain the current alignment of the existing bridge. The design includes new 1.4-metre high, bicycle-friendly, galvanised, tubular handrails to improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians.

Works included:

  • removing the existing bridge structure
  • piling works to construct the new bridge foundation
  • installing the new steel truss bridge
  • reconstructing sections of the footpath leading up to the new bridge.

Construction started in late July 2019 and was completed in early December 2019.
