Lees Bridge was a single lane timber bridge on Douglas Creek Road, Daintree that was severely impacted by Cyclone Tiffany on 10 – 11 January 2022. Council successfully sought funding through the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DFRA) for a replacement concrete bridge.

Unfortunately, Cyclone Jasper in December 2023 further hampered efforts to build the new bridge. A minor redesign of bridge has been undertaken in recent weeks and is nearing completion.

The new concrete bridge comprises of driven piles with concrete headstocks and deck units. It has a 4.2 m roadway with an asphalt running surface.

Cost of Project

Council is currently preparing a new application for funding the bridge construction with DFRA.  Pending the approval of the funding, the tender and construction process would start promptly.
