Lees paddocks bridge at pine hut

Postby gorby » Sat 10 Nov, 2007 2:55 pm

does anyone have any info on the replacement bridge at pinehut?

I have heard that there is a development proposed for that area for upmarket bushwalkers and fishermen.

Due to employment change,I have not been up that way for quite a few months.

On Sat 24/11 we ventured in the site of the bridge over the Mersey, near Pine Hut and were delighted to discover that it is in the process of being repaired :o roseart

We have a photo of the bridge that now spans the river.
it is still closed- but if it is of interest and someone can tell me how to up load it to this site - we would be happy to do so -roseart

Hi Roseart... there are instructions for displaying images in the forums in this gallery forum topic. You'll need to actually host the images yourself. If you don't have a web server to host them on, feel free to email them to me, and I'll post 'em for you.

That's great news to here that the new bridge is nearly done!

It's back!

At church on Sunday I spoke to someone who was there last weekend. It sounds like it was a repair job rather than complete replacement as you can still see debris in the grill from the flood.

I know this is second hand and therefore subject to the dangers of Chinese whispers. Perhaps a forum member will be there in the near future to collect photographic evidence.

Just got back from a tour over Lake Myrtle Tk and returned via Jackson's Ck TK and had a run up Lees Paddocks today. Sore feet (man, that's a steep rise up to Lake Bill), fishing all the way...

I can confirm the bridge is back, and was a repair job. Looks good though. No pics, was too buggered to take out the camera.

Only one problem to go. The repairs have yet to be certified by an engineer, and as such the bridge is taped off and warning signs are in place to use the current ford at the end of the track in. The Mole Ck office of the PWS can advise when the bridge is right to use. Ph: 03 6363 5182.

The gate in from Mersey Forest Rd is also still unlocked. 4WD access to the ford or bridge is currently available for those who prefer a closer start. :wink:
