Chowie Bridge, which spans Deep Creek is a concrete viaduct with an 80 foot (24.4m) concrete arch flanked by two smaller 15 foot (4.6m) arches, with the track run on sleepers and ballast in a trough. It has the date of construction, 1905, cast into the sides.

The bridge represented a substantial development in concrete arch bridge design. It followed the 33 foot spans used in Swansons Bridge on the Main Line near Toowoomba and the 47 foot span at Petrie Terrace road over bridge. It was followed by two substantial concrete arch bridges on the Main Line near Lockyer.

The Mungar - Gayndah Branch was built only as far as Degilbo before the financial depression of the early 1890s halted the rail construction program. Construction resumed in 1905 under the Railway Department’s day labour program. William Pagan was Chief Engineer at the time. Construction began on the Degilbo to Wetheron extension in February 1905. William Pagan inspected the extent of the construction and preparatory work on the Deep Creek bridge in March 1905. The bridge was completed and the line opened by 21 December 1905. Pagan described the bridge in his annual report for that year as “a concrete bridge of somewhat novel design”. This concrete arch bridge has the third longest span of its type in Queensland.
