    That looks like quite a low bridge... even a small rise in water-level would probably present a problem here... I say break it down and build another one (that's the civil engineer in me speaking)!! :)

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/panorama_paul] It's not actually that low. Usually a good 1.5m above the water level. Waters are still high at the moment.

    Oh, no no no! This is the highest and best bridge on the road! It takes a decent amount of creek rise, probably a couple of metres before this one goes under :)
    Of course, I do actually predict a replacement in its future :( RIP...

    Crazy times David,
    I only made it home this morning Dayboro and the road into it is a mess its just a crazy amount of water. A couple of land slides have cut off part of Mt Mee Road.

    wow.. that looks in pretty bad shape.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/accesser] Almost went to Dayboro this arvo in the search of mobile phone signal (our internet was down - back now).
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/hsintailiu] Sure is. Some people have bogged up the holes with dirt now to allow non-4wd cars to pass.

    Now you can go to Wivenhoe and shoot the dam when it collapses!

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/maasha] hahaha there's been no more rain and they're releasing water. Unlikely to collapse - Somerset on the other hand....

    hmmmmm, its got off more lightly than I thought it would, which is good, at least its still useable with care, looks like there is enough debris to drive on if the bridge collapsed !
    Aussie land is on all our news broadcasts, at least you will all be shipshape quicker than Haiti

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/33085391@N00] That's 'cause we all like being the centre of attention, and needed something to distract you all from the woeful performance in the Ashes ;-)
    Seriously though, I expect the bridge will need major reconstruction works. Our road is officially closed, but locals are still travelling it. Hopefully the road-closed signs will keep the tourists out.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/33085391@N00] I'm not a cricket fan at all, amazingly boring game to watch (but then I don't really watch sport at all).
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/ancelb] 'tis a bit ;-) At least it's still passable.
    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/cobra_11] Yep, we're all ok.
