McVicars Culvert is treated as a bridge due to the waterway area under the road being large. The existing bridge consists of two 1 metre diameter culverts that pass under the road.
The road at McVicars Culvert has been washed away three times in recent memory, most recently in 2018.
|Two 1m diameter culverts
Approximately 3m of road was washed away during the cyclone. Earthworks have been completed to allow road users to pass. Access may be limited during heavy rainfall.
