Bridge Reopened

Repair works to the O’Keefe Rail Trail by the City of Greater Bendigo has now reopened the trail’s Campaspe Rv bridge, following damage sustained from the recent major flooding event.

While additional works are planned, the recently completed works have allowed trail users to safely cross the river without needing to share the McIvor Hwy bridge.

Temporary safety fences are in place, as further works to reinstall approach fences and bollards are required. This additional work is unlikely to be completed before the Christmas holiday period. 

Resurfacing of the trail’s damaged gravel surface sections will be undertaken when gravel material is available from the quarry in 2023.
