Burnett Highway (Gayndah - Monto), Eidsvold, —Three Moon Creek Bridge replacement

The project involved constructing a higher, wider, longer and stronger concrete bridge on the Burnett Highway across Three Moon Creek.

The project involved replacing the former 62-year-old, 2-lane timber bridge on the Burnett Highway, north of Eidsvold, which required regular maintenance to keep it in a safe and trafficable condition. The old bridge had a low flood immunity which caused the closure of the Burnett Highway during flood events, requiring motorists to make a lengthy detour.
