Project Description

The existing bridge is an ageing timber beam and timber deck structure and forms a vital access link for the community. The existing timber bearers are over 20 years old and show signs of wear and deterioration. Gaps, movement and surface irregularities in the timber deck make it a risk for pedestrians and cyclists. Maintenance frequencies beyond normal expectations is required to keep the surface serviceable. Pedestrians share the 7 metre width with traffic without a safe path of travel.

Works will involve replacing the existing 7 metre by 40 metre deck, with a timber stress laminated deck system and replace existing timber beams with new steel beams. An ashphalt road surface wearing system overlay will be layed to improve durability of the new deck. There will be the addition of a pedestrian walkway cantilevered off the existing truss bridge.

Total cost of proposed project is $824,066
