Traralgon Railway Reservoir Conservation Reserve gets bridge upgraded to improve user safety and accessibility
An upgraded bridge at the Traralgon Railway Reservoir Conservation Reserve will improve users safety and accessibility while walking around the lake.
Federal MP Darren Chester said the new Middle Bridge had been installed and works were now complete. "The Traralgon Railway Reservoir Conservation Reserve is a drawcard to our region so improving the infrastructure keeps the route accessible and safe for users."

Link to the loop of pathways
Mr Chester said, "The old bridge was dilapidated and becoming a risk for users when crossing especially for those with prams or mobility aids. The new concrete structure is a key link to the entire loop of pathways in the 30 hectare reserve."
The reserve features around three kilometres of walking tracks. The lake in the middle is part of the Traralgon Creek catchment and was originally a dam, established in the late 1800s. The reserve is home to a large number of aquatic plants and birdlife.
