Engineers to determine safety of One Mile Bridge

THE One Mile Bridge will remain closed for at least part of this morning, while Ipswich City Council await advice from engineers.

A council spokeswoman yesterday confirmed the bridge would be closed overnight, with no opening time set.

Council officers, emergency services workers and engineers yesterday conducted inspections of Ipswich roads, bridges and homes affected by flood waters.

Pending information from inspecting engineers, a further announcement about the One Mile Bridge may be made today.

The bridge was badly damaged in the 2011 floods and remained closed for many days.

Road closures contributed to major traffic congestion in the Ipswich CBD yesterday.

The David Trumpy bridge was particularly congested, and the Queensland Police Service warned motorists to delay driving through the CBD if possible.

Some Ipswich roads and crossings did open yesterday, including the Hancock Bridge at Brassall.

However, Lynches Crossing and Sydney St at Brassall remained closed, meaning One Mile residents had to divert via Wulkaraka Connection Rd and onto the Warrego Hwy to get to the Ipswich CBD and other areas.

Council issued updates of road closures and newly opened roads at ipswich.qld.gov.au and via the Ipswich City Council Facebook page.
