Structural Issues Found On Timber Bridges In Morganville

 

Structural issues have been identified on two bridges south west of Bundaberg.

A 15 tonne load limit has been imposed on both the St Agnes and Perry River Bridges on Walla Road at Morganville after structural issues were identified during a routine inspection.

Roads and Drainage portfolio spokesperson Cr Bill Trevor said the load limitation would remain in place until refurbishment works were carried out.

“Refurbishment work will begin next week to repair structural damage to Perry River Bridge and is expected to take eight to ten weeks,” Cr Trevor said.

“St Agnes Bridge works will get underway as soon as the Perry River Bridge works are completed.

“A side track will be in place at both locations during construction.”

Council apologises for any inconvenience to motorists. Enquiries regarding the load limits can be directed to Council’s District Engineer on 1300 883 699.
