The original site of the Ellis Wallace bridge no longer crosses the Esk River. The cyclone resulted in the riverbed shifting approximately 60m to the south. The bridge is now buried in silt and is due to be deconstructed.
|Two spans of 12.2m length each
Two temporary structures were built to allow access to the residents. A ford was initially constructed followed by a 36.5m long bailey bridge.
