Temporary Bridge Closures
As part of North Burnett Regional Council’s NDRRA program, the following bridges will be closed for approximately two (2) weeks from Saturday, 17 September (weather permitting) while betterment works are undertaken:
- Jack Parr Bridge located on Coonambula Road, Mundubbera;
- Burnett River No. 1 Bridge located on Humphery Binjour Road, Gayndah;
- Reids Creek located on Mt Debatable Road, Gayndah; and
- Bon Accord Bridge located on Bon Accord Wetheron Road, Gayndah.
The projects will involve the reconstruction of one or both of the bridge approaches and replacement of the sealed pavement with concrete.
Due to the project scope, Council is unable to construct side tracks for these locations, thus work has been scheduled to coincide with the finish of the fruit picking season and to minimise disruption to local school buses.
Should you be directly affected by these scheduled road closures and have concerns regarding access, please contact Council’s Engineering and Environment Services staff on 1300 696 272 (1300 MY NBRC).
The bridges are expected to re-open Monday, 3 October 2016, weather permitting.
The road closures will ensure the completion of more cost effective, quicker and safer projects, and when complete, the upgraded roads will provide greater flood resilience.
Motorists are requested to travel with extreme care and responsibility, to drive to the prevailing road conditions and to adhere to signage. Council apologises for any inconvenience caused and thanks you for your patience whilst this work is in progress.
For further information please contact Council’s Engineering and Environmental Services staff on 1300 696 272 (1300 MY NBRC) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
