A MAJOR milestone was recently achieved with the demolition of the 98-year-old southbound bridge.

To ensure the new bridge is built as quickly as possible, construction has been staged around demolition of the old bridge.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads confirmed nearly half of the foundations for the new bridge have now been completed, and the deck units for the first of the bridge's four spans have been installed.

A TMR spokesperson said traffic conditions and patterns through the site are stable and they claimed traffic volumes continue to be lower than before the closure, with queues generally clearing quickly.

"The Caboolture rail line closure between September 16 and 23 had minimal impacts on traffic through the bridge site," they said.

"We're continuing to monitor conditions make the necessary adjustments to traffic signals to help traffic flow through the site.

"We appreciate the ongoing patience and support shown by motorists and residents during work for the project."
