Update on Cedars Bridge

3 Feb 2013

The Cedars Bridge crossing on the Burnett River is expected to remain closed until Wednesday.

Bundaberg Regional Council Mayor, Cr. Mal Forman said he has been advised by Department of Main Roads and Transport personnel that while flooding of the bridge is diminishing, substantial work to make the bridge safe for traffic will need to be undertaken.

"There is severe scouring of the roadways on the approaches to the bridge and mud on the bridge itself makes it extremely unsafe," he said.

"Motorists will need to exercise a little more patience prior to attempting to use this route," said Cr. Forman.
