Construction work on the Bribie Island Bridge Underpass continues even though it was estimated to be finished by August. There have been significant challenges which have unfortunately delayed the completion of the work.
Moreton Bay Regional Council (MBRC) Member for Division 1, Brooke Savige said she was thankful for the community’s continued patience throughout the project and with the delays
“A project this significant would generally have a 12-month planning process, however this wasn’t the case with these emergency works and consequently there have been a number of challenges throughout the project.
“Recently the site has been subjected to vandalism and theft, with equipment and materials being stolen or thrown into the Pumicestone Passage despite increased security. This is disappointing and these actions cause considerable delays. However, the project is progressing and Concrete has recently been poured.”
Recently changes were made to traffic management for the pedestrian crossing to allow greater stopping time for drivers, though Councillor Savige continues to urge all road users to take extra care through the area.
