Coondoo Creek Bridge on Tin Can Bay Road

Overview:

The project involves constructing a raised 3-span concrete bridge structure over Coondoo Creek and new approaches. The new structure will be wider and built on a new and improved alignment to the west of the existing timber structure.

Location:

Tin Can Bay Road, about 34km east of Gympie.

Regions:
Wide Bay Burnett Region

Project info

The new bridge will result in improved safety, flood immunity, community connectivity and reduced maintenance costs.

In August 2018, the Australian Government announced another round of successful projects as part of its Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Program (HVSPP). This included a $5 million funding contribution to replace the Coondoo Creek Bridge, at a total cost of $14.821m. The department has welcomed this commitment and is currently liaising with the federal government about a state government funding contribution and timeframes.
