Bridge dedicated to Burke & Wills.
High level crossing upstream of Innamincka causway giving potential access to the town during floods on the Cooper. But if there's local rainfall the roads will be boggy,impassable and closed as is the case in Feb 2010. And when a 1 in 20 year flood arrives as in March 2010 the structure may not be as flood proof as it appears. The bridge deck and water level are equal when the reading on the Nappa Merrie gauge is 7.2m. Bridge deck covered from 11th to 27th March and was 1.1m under on the14th.
