Its open folks and we have just walked on it!!!!!! The rail bridge over Currumbin Creek on the 1903 opened Tweed Heads Coolangatta line has been rebuilt and open to the public as a walkway and bike way!!! Pictures when I get organized. The biggest surprise was seeing a bridge plan etched onto a sign formed out of one of the spare 27 ft Carnegie USA manufactured Rolled Steel Joists (RSJ), in particular this plan https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByB-ppGeDyvwbURXS1ItSDhHNFU/view plus a very extensive text on QR engineer and eventually deputy QR commissioner William Pagan, mainly based on his obituary. The sign highlighted that his signature was on the bridge plan on the same sign. His Obituary URL http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/219451229Currumbin Creek former QR railway bridge is being repaired. Council website notes the following; work will be done to conserve the 113-year-old ex-railway bridge at Currumbin which is now a dedicated pedestrian bridge. This does mean the bridge will be closed from April to July 2016. The heritage of the existing structure will be retained and environmental considerations are identified as high priority.Gold Coast Council websites on the job http://www.goldcoast.qld.gov.au/currumbin-railway-bridge-renewal-30825.html
