Bon Accord Bridge Update
North Burnett Regional Council is pleased to announce the successful contractor for the Bon Accord Bridge rehabilitation contract is Timber Restoration Services Pty Ltd.

This crucial project aims to revitalise the bridge’s structural integrity, enhance its load-bearing capacity, and implement state-of-the-art, low maintenance timber technologies providing a 100-year design life.

Scheduled to commence in late August 2023, the bridge rehabilitation project is programmed to be completed in mid-2024. Early works will include deconstruction of the exiting bridge deck, rehabilitation of
existing concrete foundations, and the civil works for the approaches.

To ensure a timely delivery of the project, a prefabricated, modular glue laminated timber superstructure will be constructed off site and then delivered to site for installation in mid-2024.

We extend our appreciation to our residents for their patience and understanding during the bridge rehabilitation period. Together, we look forward to witnessing the transformation of the bridge into a renewed landmark that reflects the resilience and progress of our region and reinforcing the link to the timber industry in our region.

A Vietnam Veterans Vigil Service was held at the grave of Lance Corporal Phillip Raymond Goody on Thursday 3 August 2023 as part of the Australian remembers commemorations by the Federal Government
to honour the dead from the Vietnam war.

Mr Peter Buckney was Phillip Goodys Platoon Sergeant in Vietnam and Mr Buckney conducted the service at the Monto No.2 Cemetery, with approximately 60 persons attending the memorial service.
