Stage 1 of the bridge approach rehabilitation has been completed on-site by a local contractor. This work has allowed the bridge contractor to access the bridge and undertake substructure rehabilitation and fixing installation to support the new deck.

Work is currently underway to procure for stage 2 of the approach work. This work will include concrete batter protection, signage and line-marking, clearing, and installation of the bridge approach slabs. It will allow the remaining rehabilitation to be undertaken in parallel with the bridge installation.

The bridge contractor is planning to mobilise resources to the site next week, with the installation of the deck units scheduled to begin shortly thereafter. The second shipment of bridge deck units is currently in transit to the port and will be delivered to the site promptly upon arrival to allow for the continuation of installation in mid-July.

Council appreciates the inconvenience caused by the closure and is working closely with the project team to deliver the refurbished bridge.

This project is partly funded through the Queensland Reconstruction Authority.
