Breakaway Bridge, Acheron

Breakaway Bridge suffered significant damage during the October 2022 Floods and remains closed (however access is available to properties and businesses on either side of the Bridge, including Twin Rivers Caravan Park and Rennies at Acheron).

We recognise the significant impact of the damage and closure of Breakaway Bridge on the Acheron community and directly impacted residents. 

Murrindindi Shire Council, Goulburn Murray Water (GMW), Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority and the State Government continue to work together to restore access to residents and will ensure local community members are involved in deciding the future of the bridge.

Recent updates for the Acheron community are below:
