Emergency Bridging

Crossing over Brisbane River restored - now an award winner

Somerset Council has installed a steel Unibridge as a temporary measure to replace the Alf Williams Bridge over the Brisbane River at Gregors Creek which was destroyed in January’s flooding.

The temporary bridge restores a vital economic and community link for Somerset.

The bridge will have a load limit of 25 tonnes and will have a total installed cost of more than $450,000. The bridge is expected to be reused as the new permanent bridge at Maronghi Creek near Harlin which was also destroyed by flooding.

Somerset Mayor Cr Graeme Lehmann said, “This is a highly innovative, low-cost, fast but temporary measure to help bring the devastated Somerset community back together again and comes less than 4 months after the original bridge was completely destroyed in January’s floods.”

“Our Council engineers have done a magnificent job here and restoring this vital crossing is a testament to the ongoing hard work and ingenuity of our people in the wake of the most devastating floods in living memory.”
