Dickabram Bridge will be closed during the day next week

TRANSPORT and Main Roads will continue a detailed inspection of the heritage-listed Dickabram Bridge on Miva Rd near Miva from Monday, February 17, weather permitting.

TMR regional director Doug Wass said the routine inspection followed an inspection late last year and was expected to be completed by Friday, February 21, if the weather allowed.

"To ensure the bridge crew can access all parts of the structure safely and efficiently, a temporary closure will be put in place from 9.30am to 2.30pm," he said.

"During the temporary closure, a signed detour will be in place via Old Gympie Rd, Bauple-Woolooga Rd and Munna Miva Rd.

"Variable message signs will also be in place at each end of Miva Rd alerting motorists to the changed conditions ahead."

Mr Wass thanked everyone in advance for their patience and co-operation while the important bridge works were underway.

"Dickabram Bridge is the oldest remaining of the early large metal truss bridges constructed with the Queensland Railways," he said.

"Commissioned in 1886, the bridge is significant as it carries a roadway and a railway, making it locally and historically important."

For more information about the works, phone the TMR Bundaberg office on 1300 728 390 during business hours or email bundaberg.office@tmr.qld.gov.au.
