Upgraded Julius River bridges improve visitor access

23/02/2018

Bridge upgrades at the Julius River Regional Reserve are now complete.


The pedestrian timber bridges on the Rainforest Walk at the Julius River picnic area have been replaced with steel span bridges to improve visitor access at the popular track.


The Rainforest Walk is a major drawcard for visitors on the Tarkine Drive in the State's North-west. The old timber bridges were due for upgrading and had previously been damaged by floods.


Ulverstone-based Mobile Onsite Engineering manufactured the new bridges and were awarded the contract to construct the abutments and install the bridges. Contractors were assisted on site by Parks and Wildlife Service staff, who carried out the heli-lift to install the second, more remote bridge.
