The replacement of the old timber bridge was triggered by the June 2016 floods which caused substantial damage to the timber bridge.

The Project

The original single lane four span bridge was completely destroyed by the June 2016 floods and cut off a vital link between residents and businesses at Lapoinya through to Wynyard and the Bass Highway in North West Tasmania.

The old timber bridge on Lapoinya Road over the Flowerdale River was washed approximately 150 metres downstream. It had to be removed from the river, along with the remnants positioned along the river bank and disposed of. Many of the larger components were salvaged and re-purposed by one of the local residents.
