Intake Bridge – Forest Lodge Road, Pyengana

Due to a landslip, these works have taken longer than planned. We are currently undertaking landslip remediation works with the project, including the installation of the bridge scheduled for completion by the end of April, 2021.

Intake Bridge on Forest Lodge Road has been closed due to its age and rate of deterioration making it unsafe for vehicle use. The bridge will be replaced by the end of May and the road re-opened to the public. It will however be load limited to 27 tonne gross. We will also be addressing some minor landslip in the area during this period. The bridge closure does prevents vehicles from having a direct route between St Columba Falls Road and Ralph Falls.

Vehicles under 8 tonne gross can still traverse the section of Forest Lodge Road from the Tasman Hwy north of Pyengana linking to the intersection with Mount Victoria Road.

The map below highlights the section of closed road.
