Description

This is the largest steel cantilever bridge in Australia and was opened in 1940 as a toll bridge. Queensland engineers, Sir James Holt and consultant Dr JJC Bradfield designed the bridge, and a local consortium, Evans Deakin-Hornibrook, constructed it. The bridge was the focus of a major maintenance and refurbishment program during the 1990s.
