The three-month project to replace the bridge over Herbert Creek on Boolburra Edungalba Road was completed last week, with the road opening to motorists from Friday 23 December 2016.
The $1.25 million project involved removal of the existing timber bridge and replacing with a concrete structure as well as the stabilisation and resurfacing of the approaches. The new bridge will provide improved flood access for motorists in the Boolburra and Edungalba communities, particularly ahead of the upcoming storm season.
The project was jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland Governments as part of the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements in association with Central Highlands Regional Council.
