Update on Lapoinya Road Bridge at Flowerdale River
The flood events of 5 and 6 June 2016 caused major damage to Council infrastructure including the Lapoinya Road timber bridge over the Flowerdale River. As a result of flood waters this bridge failed catastrophically and was dislodged from its abutments.
Designing and construction of a new dual lane concrete bridge at Lapoinya Rd/Flowerdale River is in progress.
The new bridge has been scheduled for completion by October 2016 (subject to weather conditions).
