Project Description

Yass Valley Council engaged a Structural Engineer to conduct a capacity inspection on this bridge. This bridge can no longer support the load it was previously, due to structural concerns and the possibilty of failings. This bridge has now been placed on a specified load restriction limit as per the consulting engineers recommendations.

A side track needs to be built around the timber bridge. This track will be constructed to a standard which allows access for vehicles carrying the road limits load capacity to cross. This track shall remain in use until the bridge can be replaced as part of Councils Timber Bridge Replacement Program.
