Eumundi
Location: Eumundi Range Road
Project details: The existing timber bridge on Eumundi Range Road, Eumundi is reaching the end of its serviceable life. This bridge will be replaced as it can no longer be maintained to the standard required. To improve safety, the new bridge will be wider to accommodate two 3.5m wide traffic lanes with a 1.2m wide shoulder on both sides and a 2m wide separated pathway for pedestrians and cyclists.

While the new bridge will not prevent Eumundi Range Road being cut off by flooding (due to low approach roads), council is planning for the future by constructing the new bridge at a higher level than the existing one. Bridge construction is scheduled to start mid July 2015. Completion of bridge construction is expected before Christmas 2015 with full completion of work expected in February.
Start date:15 June 2015
Duration:31 weeks
