First step for new bridge at Scrub Creek Road

COUNCIL has awarded a contract for $218,760 to ConTec Pty Ltd for the supply of concrete bridge decks for the construction of a new bridge for the Scrub Creek Road crossing of Brisbane River at Braemore.

Traffic Safety and Advisory Committee member Councillor Sean Choat said the concrete decks will be used in the replacement of a low-level crossing that regularly floods and is susceptible to repeated flood damage.

“This is great news for residents whose access to or from their homes is being impacted when the current bridge is flooded, cutting them off from travel.

“Council officers are working through the final design details for the project, which will result in a resilient concrete bridge, and with the benefit of a hundred-year life,” Cr Choat said.

While a start date for the works has not yet been set, the contract for the decks has been awarded now to eliminate potential delays caused by supply issues.

The Scrub Creek Road bridge project has been jointly funded by the Australian Government and Queensland Government under Commonwealth and State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DFRA).
