Alan Wilke Bridge restoration

When ex-tropical cyclone Debbie passed over the Gold Coast in March 2017, the Alan Wilke Bridge was severely damaged.

The eastern approach to the Alan Wilke Bridge was destroyed, and flood water eroded the banks of the Albert River that join the bridge.

Reopening the bridge has been the top priority for our flood recovery team who fast-tracked works to open ahead of schedule.

The Alan Wilke Bridge on Stanmore Road reopened to traffic on Saturday 19 August 2017.

The bridge is open and all works have been completed.

We thank you for your patience while we repaired the bridge and road.
