Pretty Point Bridge

A 65-signature petition calling for the restoration of the trusses on the historic Pretty Point Bridge has been tabled with Bega Valley Shire Council. 

The petition said the council’s own heritage report described it as being of exceptional heritage value. 

The 120-year-old bridge was socially and historically important, having been built from local timber by local people whose descendants still lived in the area, the petition said.

The community felt betrayed by council's decision, it said.
