New footbridge for Tomahawk


A new footbridge linking the village of Tomahawk with the nearby beach was officially opened last week by the Minister for Environment, Parks and Heritage.

Minister Brian Wightman said the new footbridge is an important community asset.

“A footbridge at Tomahawk has been providing easy access to the beaches of the Waterhouse Conservation Area since 1975 and the community has contributed to its maintenance in the intervening years,” Mr Wightman said.

The previous timber bridge was replaced by a new 60-metre aluminium structure after flooding damaged the bridge in 2011.

“This new footbridge will have a long life and continue to provide the community and visitors with safe access to the beach, an amenity which is an important part of coastal life in Tasmania,” Mr Wightman said.
