New name for newly upgraded bridge
  • Wednesday 03 October 2012

Sunshine Coast Council has announced the official name of the newly revamped concrete bridge located over the Mary River on Mary River Bridge Road in Cambroon.

Division 5 Councillor Jenny McKay said she was delighted to officially title the revitalised bridge "Cambroon Bridge".

"The old timber bridge has recently been replaced by a new reinforced concrete bridge with greater elevation," she said.

"While historically this bridge has unofficially been known by local residents as Cambroon Bridge since the 1940’s, the naming of this bridge simply formalises the name.

"This official naming will also make mapping, reference points and the management of this local road easier.

"It is also a really nice recognition of this bridge that plays an important role in connecting the Eastern Mary River Road and Maleny - Kenilworth Road and is regularly used by locals and visitors alike."

The name was submitted by a resident of the area to council for consideration. Following community engagement and the recommendation from the naming panel for the application to progress, this official name was endorsed by council at the September Ordinary Meeting.

Council’s Local Law No 4 (Local Government Controlled areas, facilities, Infrastructure and Roads) 2011 Section 7 Management of local government controlled areas, facilities, infrastructure and roads will be amended to reflect the name as part of the current local law review.
