Construction begins on Meander Falls Road bridge replacement


Work will begin on the Meander Falls Road bridges replacement project on 19 October 2015. Construction will be highly dependent on weather and river levels, but it is anticipated that works will be completed over a four to six week period.

During construction Meander Falls Road will be closed to the public past the intersection with Scotts Road. As a result there will be no access to Smoko Road or the walking tracks starting on this road including Stone Hut, Ironstone and Mother Cummings Peak tracks. Access will be available to emergency vehicles if required.

Visitors should contact PWS staff on 6777 2179 to check the status of Smoko Road prior to visiting, to avoid disappointment.
