Carnarvon Bridge opens to two lanes

THE Carnarvon Bridge in Stanthorpe is now open to two lanes of traffic following repairs to the Quart Pot Creek footbridge, Main Roads Minister Craig Wallace said today.

Mr Wallace said last month’s floods caused major damage to the handrails on the footbridge and road approaches to the bridge.

“In the interests of safety, the footbridge was closed and the bridge was reduced to one lane while repairs were carried out,” he said.

“Our 33,000 kilometre road network suffered major damage in the floods and road crews have been working hard to reopen vital links, such as the Carnarvon Bridge, for local communities.

“I thank drivers for their patience and understanding while the work was being carried out.”
