Road closed after bridge set on fire
A BRIDGE over the Nymboida River near Bostobrick has been damaged by fire and will be closed indefinitely.
Clarence Valley Council works and civil director, Troy Anderson, said the bridge had received significant damage in a fire overnight and Tyringham Road was closed as a result.
"Until we have the chance to undertake a full assessment of the damage it's difficult to tell how long it will be out of action, but from first impressions it will be a while,” he said.
"The only alternative route is Armidale Road via Waterfall Way. That information is available at http://northernrivers.myroadinfo.com.au/
"We apologise for any inconvenience to motorists.”
Mr Anderson said police had been notified and would investigate circumstances around the fire.
