Dickabram Bridge celebrations

IT IS the only bridge of its kind in Queensland and next weekend the Dickabram Bridge at Miva will celebrate 125 years since construction ended in 1886.

More than 3000 people are expected to turn out for the anniversary on Saturday, September 17 with guest Queensland Governor-General Penelope Wensley.

"We are getting a huge response," organiser Kathy Dakin said.

Ms Dakin said the Theebine Memorial and Recreation Centre had been planning the celebrations for almost a year.

Local bands, vintage cars, historical displays and stalls will go from 7.30am before Ms Wensley officially opens the celebrations at noon.

The Queensland Rail Silver Spike team will also show off how train rails were laid in the 1800s.

The Dickabram bridge is the only road and rail bridge in Queensland and one of fewer than 10 still standing in Australia.
