Two years of work to upgrade a remote bridge over the Arthur River in Tasmania’s remote north-west has wrapped up.

The $2.1 million Kanunnah Bridge project began in March 2022 and addressed essential repairs identified through engineering inspections.


The bridge at the junction of Sumac Road and Blackwater Road in the Trowutta Regional Reserve provides an important link for industry and is also part of a popular tourist route.

Upgrades included strengthening pier footings, repainting bridge beams and replacing barriers and expansion joints.

The project unfolded in two stages, with stage one reinforcing the bridge with additional steelworks at cost of $1.19 million and removing the previous 27-tonne temporary load limit.

Tasmanian firm Bridge Pro successfully completed the upgrades, which are hoped to now improve the bridge’s resilience against major flood damage.
