Closure of Timber Pedestrian Bridge – Cubbitch Barta Reserve

Posted on: 12.05.2017

To ensure community safety, Council has closed the northern pedestrian bridge in the Cubbitch Barta Reserve, Camden Park due significant structural deterioration.  This has happened quicker than would be expected with this type of structure, and termite damage appears to be a major factor.

Council carried out an inspection in early 2016 before the handover of the bridge from the developer and termite treatments were undertaken at this time.  Despite this, deterioration has increased significantly resulting in the closure of the Bridge.

Council officers and external consultants will be inspecting all timber structures in Cubbitch Barta Reserve over the next couple of weeks to re-evaluate their condition and prioritise any work required. We apologise for any inconvenience caused to residents by the bridge closure.
