Bass Coast Local News:
Kilcunda’s Famous Bridge Set for Facelift

Kilcunda’s iconic Trestle Bridge (Bourne Creek Bridge) gets a facelift.

By Portal Admin - 27th January 2019 - Back to News

An upgrade of the deck and handrails on Kilcunda’s iconic Trestle Bridge (Bourne Creek Bridge) will start on 29 January and be completed by early March.

While the work is being carried out, the bridge will be closed to the public.

This $867,000 project is part of Bass Coast Shire Council’s Renewal Program and involves the replacement of balustrading and handrails and the installation of Enviro-walk minimesh decking on the historic bridge. The new decking will sit on top of the existing bridge structure, providing a significant improvement to the safety and functionality of the bridge.

These works will ensure the Bourne Creek Bridge remains as a landmark feature of the region and can continue to provide a vital link for the Bass Coast Rail Trail well into the future.

There is no alternative route during the closure and it is not recommended to walk along the Bass Highway.

Signage will be updated and in place for the duration of the works. For more information of this and other Council projects, visit
