Tumbledown Creek Bridge Remains Closed
Tumbledown Creek Bridge next to Arthurs Lake is closed. The bridge allowing access to Little Lake and Gunns Lake. The deteriorating structural condition is causing the closure. Unfortunately, it wil;l be closed over the Christmas period and into the the mid-summer months.
This timber bridge was originally built nearly 15 years ago. It provided access to transmission lines. Hydro Tasmania (HT) left the bridge in place to allow recreational users access to Little Lake and Gunns Lake.
HT advised that it is unlikely the adjacent ford will be crossable until the lake level reduces in the mid-summer months. HT estimate high clearance vehicles can pass through the ford when the Arthurs Lake water level is more than 1.8m below full supply level. However, it is up to individuals to assess whether conditions are appropriate to allow safe fording. We advise that no traffic uses the timber bridge.
You can find up to date information on the lake levels the Hydro Tasmania website.
HT thank you for your patience. If you have any question please contact Anna Blake: firstname.lastname@example.org.
