The Mungindi Bridge
is a road bridge
that carries the Carnarvon Highway
across the Barwon River
on the Queensland
/New South Wales
border at Mungindi
, New South Wales, Australia
The current Mungindi Bridge is a two-lane concrete bridge with a pedestrian footpath on one side. The bridge is higher to improve flood immunity of the rural highway. Construction of the current bridge and road approaches was jointly funded by New South Wales
state governments under the Southern Queensland Accelerated Road Rehabilitation Project.
The original Mungindi Bridge was a Dare-type truss
road bridge, designed by Harvey Dare. It was one of forty Dare-type truss bridges built in New South Wales. The bridge was built by Lawson and Wladro in 1914. It was a single timber truss span of 27.7 m, with two timber approach spans at each end giving the bridge an overall length of 61.6 m.
