Council are undertaking urgent construction works to the pedestrian underpass at the eastern end of the Bribie Island Bridge. As a result of strong winds and high tides from Tropical Cyclone Oma (TC Oma) the retaining wall supporting the pedestrian underpass has collapsed. Due to the nature of works it is envisaged that the underpass will remain closed to the public for a period of up to 2 months. Currently the works are at design stage, with construction estimated to commence early April 2019.

Traffic controllers will be on site to manage safe pedestrian movements from the hours of 5:00 AM to 10:00 PM, 7 days per week, while these restoration works are undertaken.
Project updates relating to these works will be provided each Monday until construction commences at which point twice weekly updates will be provided.
