tourism tasmania logoA temporary Bailey bridge is being installed today at the Nelson Bay Bridge to restore access to local communities.
The Nelson Bay Bridge, a wooden bridge located on Temma Road on the route from Arthur River to Corinna, was recently damaged beyond repair by bushfires in the local area.
The bridge provides key access for locals and tourists to the communities of Couta Rocks and Temma.
The Department of State Growth and its maintenance contractor is working collaboratively with the Circular Head Council to install an 18-metre Bailey bridge.
The Bailey bridge is a portable, prefabricated truss bridge that can be quickly deployed in emergency response and recovery to create temporary crossings, and can carry both pedestrian and vehicle traffic.
The Bailey bridge components have arrived on site and are being installed by a crew of five people.
The Bailey bridge will restore immediate access to the area while Circular Head Council is arranging for a permanent bridge to be rebuilt. The Bailey section will then be removed so it can be available for emergency management applications next summer.
