Cessnock City Council held the official opening of Lomas Lane Bridge, Nulkaba following the replacement of the old timber bridge with a reinforced concrete bridge.

Cessnock City Council Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent said it is fantastic to provide local residents and the community with a piece of infrastructure that will benefit generations to come.

“Lomas Lane bridge is an important link for not only residents but for businesses such as the Hunter Valley Zoo”.

“It is great to mark the opening of the bridge with some of the residents of the Hunter Valley Zoo and also Mr Magennis who is an ancestor of the Lomas family”, Cr Pynsent said.

The project was identified under Council’s capital works program as the single lane timber girder bridge was no longer adequate due to deterioration over time.

Work to install the new 12 metre, single lane, single span reinforced concrete bridge with a 100 year design life and open load limit began in August and finished in early September.
