Best Road bridge replacement

Best Road has been closed to all traffic due to the replacement of the bridge which started on March 6 and will reopen after the works are complete on April 13. 

During this time the section of Best Road between Preston Road and north western access to Glen Mervyn Dam will be closed. 

Regular inspections by the Parks and Wildlife Service on Best Road found that the concrete culvert has had issues with traffic passing through and will eventually fall below the required bridge specifications. 

The Parks and Wildlife Service manages a strategic network of roads to access the forested areas for bush fire suppression, forest management and nature conservation related activities.
