Join the Kirwans Bridge Community Panel

We are calling for community members to join the Kirwans Bridge Community Panel. The panel will work with Council to decide the historic bridge’s future.

In March this year the bridge’s load limit was reduced from six to three tonnes. It was a difficult decision, but one that was made to ensure the safety of those using the bridge.

A detailed inspection and assessment of the load carrying capacity of Kirwans Bridge found the bridge was in poor condition and there are several maintenance items that need attention.

Expressions of Interest are now being received for people to join the Community Panel.

The purpose of the Community Panel is to;

  • Facilitate community involvement in discussions regarding the bridge’s future
  • Capture local knowledge, issues, concerns and opportunities
  • Plan a future for Kirwans Bridge.
