Recently, Bruce Clancy, Wide Bay Acting District Director of Transport and Main Roads, advised the speed limit on the Tin Can Bay Road at Coondoo Creek would be reduced to 60 km/h in order to protect the structure.
A new detailed design to replace the Coondoo Creek Bridge with a raised three-span concrete structure and new approaches is complete, however, construction is subject to funding.
The scope of the project involves preparing a proposed design for a raised three-span concrete structure and new approaches to achieve 50-year flood immunity. The proposed structure will be wider and built on a new and improved alignment to the west of the existing timber structure.
The project will result in improved safety, flood immunity and connectivity, and will remove the need for ongoing maintenance.
Project officers are currently engaging with stakeholders adjacent to the bridge about the project and associated impacts. The department will maintain close contact with these stakeholders and other key stakeholders to keep them informed on the progress of the project.
