Project Description

Current bridge is not capable of allowing passage for heavy vehicles in excess of 4 Tonnes. The current bridge is also in poor condition with visible cracks and subsidence.

An examination is to be done to determine the suitability of the bridge to allow heavy vehicle access. A cost analysis is to follow to determine if a new bridge needs to be constructed or the current one repaired to facilitate safe heavy vehicle access. Then construction is to commence for which ever option is decided upon to address the problem. Construction is likely to include repairing the existing bridge and building a side track for heavy vehicle access.
