not so muddy for muddy creek riders

Walkers and horse riders on the equestrian trail alongside Wellington Rd in Belgrave South can enjoy a new bridge to cross Muddy Creek.

The new bridge has been constructed with durable steel and concrete at a cost of $70,000 from council's bridge improvements program.

The bridge, constructed from steel and concrete, replaces the previous wooden bridge. The bridge forms part of the Wellington Rd Equestrian Trail near Kerrs Park in Belgrave South.

The bridge was replaced after an inspection revealed the main timber beams had deteriorated. Timber decking bridges require frequent maintenance so it was decided that the new structure of concrete and steel would be better in the longer term for walkers, riders and ratepayers too with lower ongoing maintenance costs.

It's a terrific trail, well used by horse riders and walkers alike, which wends its way through some good quality native bush in Belgrave South.
