Camden Bridges Update

Alert issued 06/10/2022 9:01am

The recent floods have significantly impacted a number of Camden’s Bridges. Works are underway to investigate the scale of damage, undertake repair works and reopen these assets to the community.

The damage caused is generally due to riverbank erosion or the collapsing of the riverbank adjacent to our bridge structures. There are various possible contributing factors as flood events over the past couple of years have seen the bridges repeatedly inundated.

Regular updates on the bridges can be found here

We are working hard to reopen the bridges as quickly and safely as possible. We appreciate your patience.
