Cassowary Coast Regional Council will replace an ageing bridge on North Davidson Road, continuing its commitment to its management of its 169 bridges with an estimated total replacement cost of $99 million.

The Barbwire Creek Bridge project involves demolition and removal of the current bridge and replacing it with a concrete structure. The project will also include earthworks to the design profiles for the construction of the bridge abutments, placement of steel piles, construction of the reinforced concrete abutments, placement of concrete deck units, civil works for connection of approaches to the road network and rock protection to the creek banks. 

The Barbwire Creek Bridge upgrade is jointly funded by the Australian Government’s Bridges Renewal Program and the Cassowary Coast Regional Council and has a total project budget estimate of $995,000. 

A tender for the construction of Barbwire Creek Bridge has been awarded to NQ Civil Contractors for the amount of $566,429 (excl. GST). Council will continue to provide updates on the project as they occur.
