Load and width limit lifted at Emu Creek Bridge

The Department of Transport and Main Roads has advised that load and width restrictions at Emu Creek bridge on Toowoomba-Karara Road, Cambooya, have now been lifted.

Restrictions had been put in place after last month’s flooding, with the bridge restricted to one lane at 50km/h for vehicles weighing less than 5 tonnes due to safety concerns.

The limits werre introduced following extensive damage to the bridge foundations during significant rainfall, undermining the load capacity of the bridge.

The undermined bridge foundations, which restricted the load capacity of the bridge, have now been repaired.
