Seagull Paddock main bridge

Seagull Paddock main bridge has been closed to ensure public safety.

The bridge near Birdwood Avenue has reached end of life. We can no longer keep it safe for public use. 

We are planning to build a new bridge on this site during 2022.

In the interim, pedestrians and cyclists can cross Cowies Creek at Melbourne Road and near the Wathaurong Aboriginal Co-operative.

If you choose to use the bridges near the Wathaurong Aboriginal Co-operative take a close look at them.  Those bridges are made from a world-first geopolymer, which are designed to be maintenance-free for at least 100 years.

The new geopolymer is extremely long-lasting and uses up to 80 per cent less greenhouse gases in production than concrete.
