Bridge cops the brunt of water
ROADTEK Main Roads workers were on the job quickly on Wednesday morning to repair a minor wash-out at the Degilbo Creek bridge on the Biggenden–Maryborough Road, about 1km from Biggenden.
Timber bridge supervisor Wayne Kleidon said there had been a metre of water over the bridge, and it would be inspected to see if there was further damage.
“The bridge, which was recently changed from two lanes to a single lane, is soon to be replaced,” he said.
Patricia Worsley reported more than 100mm of heavy rain at their property in the headwaters of the creek on Tuesday night.
Biggenden residents received about 45mm in the town.
At Coalstoun Lakes farmers had around 80mm in the storms.
