Brifen on a bridge - Cooyar Kooralgin RoadThis culvert was badly damaged because the guard rail posts where dislodged during flooding and caused the cover of the culvert to be damaged. As part of the repair the council intended to concrete the side of the culvert. Because Brifen is lighter than Guard rail it was easier to accommodate, and less costly to install than guard rail.
