The NSW Government funds the ongoing maintenance of Korns Crossing Bridge to ensure safety and improve the journey of road users.
AUG 2018Site investigations and assessments
We have completed site investigations and assessments for a number of options to construct a new bridge over Crystal Creek to replace Korns Crossing Bridge. Work carried out during development included:
- Flood modelling
- Geotechnical investigations
- Environmental assessment
- Heritage assessment
- Bridge and road design.
As a result of the investigations, we are now considering options and funding opportunities and will keep the community updated.
In the meantime, we have identified the need to carry out maintenance on the bridge to ensure it continues servicing the community.
Korns Crossing Bridge is located in the village of Crystal Creek, about eight kilometres west of Murwillumbah on Numinbah Road.
The three-span Dare truss bridge, which was built in 1916, crosses the Rous River providing an important tourist link between Murwillumbah and south-east Queensland.
Under the NSW Timber Truss Strategy, Korns Crossing Bridge is to be removed and replaced with a new structure.
