Trail footbridge nearly complete
The final preparations are being made on the new footbridge being constructed at Bailey’s Bay.
Tucker Murphy, on behalf of the Friends of Bermuda Railway, said it is hoped the bridge will be complete by the end of this month or the first week of December.
“We have placed the last four spans last week and we still have to fill in gaps in the intermediate pieces that need to go in between,” he told The Royal Gazette. “We have taken the measurements and then there are a few more details; mainly the planting because some of the plants we put on the trail got taken out by the storms.”
They also plan to host an official launch inviting Friends of Bermuda Railway members, sponsors and residents of Bailey’s Bay.
It is the second bridge construction organised by the Friends of Bermuda Railway, with support from donors, volunteer contributions and community support, the first bridge is at Winton Hill, about a quarter of a mile from Bailey’s Bay. The programme could also include bridge sections being put up at Coney Island and across Flatts inlet.
