The New Bloomfield River Bridge – Part Two

The Bloomfield River bridge at Wujal Wujal (so nice, you say it twice) is coming along fast. There are only two more pylons to drill and fill. Some of the main supports are nearly ready to be poured, and Workplace Health and Safety have a new job criteria, Crocodile Watching. The bridge may well be finished before the ‘Wet’ sets in. Further South, Cook Shire has postponed work on thew Woobadda Creek bridge until after the rains. This bridge construction will continue until it gets too wet to continue. The bridge is said to be 3 metres above King tide level. However, locals are some what concerned about flood times. It is possible for this bridge to be impassable during flood rains. Time will tell.

See it now. This croc is probably about 2 metres long, just hanging around.

  1. Ha ha, fun fun!
    Government and councils always have a bad habit of starting civil works just before or during the wet season in the north! That is, if we get much of a wet this year . . .
