Historical Notes on Bridges

Approximately 65% of the shire area is classified as flood liable land in a 1 in 100 year flood event. Urban levee banks protect most urban areas and most rural lands have some level of flood bank protection. So as you can see Bridges have played an important role in the development of transport within the Shire.

Council has five lift span bridges over the Murray River with one ferry crossing. Specific information on each bridge is offered on the separate pages under this heading.
