Cullens Road Bridge re-opened with new structure

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

An ageing timber bridge just outside of Euroa has been replaced, easing any vehicle strain with a new concrete structure.

The Cullens Road Bridge, which is located 13km north-west of Euroa over Castle Creek (between Clarkes and Geodetic roads), was reopened to the public on January 25 after being closed for almost two months.

It (the bridge) was a two lane timber bridge with a maximum load limit of 10 tonnes, 18.3m long and 6.1m wide.

The bridge has been widened to 7.4 metres (from 6.1m), opening it up to a two lane reinforced concrete structure, effectively without a load limit.

The work was necessary to meet Strathbogie Shire Council’s (and the public’s) requirements with regard to access, protection of the environment, maintenance of public safety and amenity.

Mayor Amanda McClaren said Council was pleased the Cullen’s Road Bridge project had been completed.

"The new bridge will be a significant improvement for the local community," she said.

The finished product was completed in a timely, high quality and cost efficient manner and aims to provide a higher level of service to the road users.
