Low speed on Cow Bed Bridge

Concerns about the structural integrity of Cow Bed Bridge on Rocky Plains Road have forced speed restrictions of 10km/h to be imposed in addition to weight restrictions to 12 tonne.

Snowy River Shire Council is undertaking a more detailed inspection and further restrictions may be imposed.

The council has received a further report from GO Engineering, which calculates the load carrying capacity across each span. Unfortunately, following receipt of this information, council has been forced to further reduce weight restrictions across Cow Bed Bridge to 3 tonnes.

The council is in receipt of plans that would allow temporary works to be conducted and raise load limits to 12 tonne but work is not expected to be complete until late August.
