The Brisbane Courier of 11th July 1900 reported on the Pine Divisional Board meeting held the previous day “…       The plans and specifications of the new bridge over Terror’s Creek, submitted by the overseer, were approved and it was decided to go on with the work at once.”

The Brisbane Courier of 27th November 1900 reported “…The action of the farmers at Upper North Pine in assisting the Pine Divisional Board to erect a bridge over Terrors Creek deserves to be highly commended.  The bridge was badly wanted, and recognising the fact that the board have plenty to do with their money, the settlers promptly came forward with assistance, some with money and others with their teams and labour.  The bridge is now finished, and will be appreciated by all travellers as the creek crossing was a bad one, especially in flood time…”

The present-day bridge, known as the James Kinkead Berry Bridge, is the third bridge to be constructed at this location (or is it the fourth?)
