About the project

The existing concrete bridge was built in 1926, and had reached the end of its serviceable lifespan. In order to maintain a safe pedestrian crossing, the bridge was removed and an alternative footpath connection was constructed along Sandgate Road.

The works began in September 2020 and involved:

  • construction of new footpath along Sandgate Road
  • installation of new guard rail
  • removal of the bridge structure including the piers and abutments
  • vegetation clearing required for the removal of the bridge structure
  • creek bank stabilisation and landscaping works

Council would like to thank the local community for their patience and understanding while these important works were completed.

Project benefits

The bridge removal and footpath connection will improve the safety and accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists.
