Cockle Creek bridge update


Work is progressing on construction of a new bridge at Cockle Creek.  The photo shows the strengthening works completed on the existing bridge, some new piles and head stock for the replacement bridge, and the excavator preparing for new piles to be driven.

Access to the camping area on the eastern side of the bridge remains closed during the construction period but access to the trackhead for the South Coast Track and South Cape Bay Track will remain available for pedestrians via a manned dinghy service provided each day between 10.00am and 4.00pm.

The Parks and Wildlife Service envisage the bridge will be completed and open for use in early September, in time for the busy spring/summer season.
