Overview

Background

In 2018, the Council initiated a project to design and construct a new bridge across Noah’s Creek, slightly upstream from the current bridge’s alignment. However, this location was deemed unsuitable due to numerous constraints, including land revocations, planning applications and cultural heritage issues, leading to the abandonment of the alternative alignment.

Post Cyclone Jasper

The bridge is currently undergoing redesign to contain the bridge and its approaches wholly within the road reserve boundaries, thus negating the need for any land acquisition. The new bridge will contained concrete piles and concrete deck units.

As part new bridge reconstruction, a temporary causeway / creek crossing will also be constructed to divert traffic during construction of a new bridge. This will be a dry causeway suitable for all types of vehicles.

New Noah’s Bridge design is back on original alignment

Note: The timelines below are tentative and will depend on State Government Agency approvals for funding, environmental and other permits. Construction period is dependent on wet weather conditions.
