Coondoo Creek Bridge on Tin Can Bay Road

We are 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.

Travel times will be impacted by the project. All motorists are advised to allow additional travel time during construction.


  • Improves safety
  • Improves flood immunity
  • Improves network efficiency

Key features

  • The new bridge will result in improved safety, flood immunity, community connectivity and reduced maintenance costs.
  • Traffic will continue using the existing timber bridge while the new bridge is constructed on a new alignment to the west.
  • Construction started in June 2019 and traffic is expected to be using the new bridge by the end of 2020, weather and construction conditions permitting.


The Australian Government has contributed $5 million and the Queensland Government has contributed $13 million as outlined in the Queensland Transport and Roads Investment Program 2019–20 to 2022–23.
