Dickabram Bridge rehabilitation works

We are currently rehabilitating the heritage-listed Dickabram Bridge, the oldest surviving steel truss bridge in Queensland.

Further works are needed to rehabilitate the heritage-listed Dickabram Bridge, which crosses the Mary River at Miva, north-west of Gympie. The Dickabram Bridge is the oldest combined road and rail crossing left in Queensland. It is also the oldest surviving complete steel truss bridge in the state.

Rehabilitation works involved replacing some of the aged timber girders, decking, piles and other structural elements. The works will ensure the bridge remains structurally intact and able to be used by various modes of transport.

Due to the bridge’s age and design, coupled with the complexity of the required rehabilitation works, the project requires ongoing full bridge closures.
