Darkwood Rd Die Happy Bridge Closure Update

Council have undertaken further investigations of Diehappy Bridge this morning. Staff have installed bracing and narrowed the travel lane to 2.8m to allow the bridge to remain open to light traffic only with a 3T load limit. Council will be undertaking further investigations of the structure over the next week to progress more permanent repairs.

It is essential that residents and visitors adhere to the restricted 3T load limit on the structure.

Variable Message Signage near the site have been updated to reflect this advice as has the MyRoadInfo website which can be viewed here:


Council appreciates your patience as we rectify this matter over the holiday season.
