Work begins on Store Hill pedestrian bridge
Work on erecting a new pedestrian bridge over Store Hill in Smith’s has begun, with the bridge expected to open next month.
The project, developed by the Friends of the Bermuda Railway Trail, is intended to link two sections of the trail that are broken by the road.
Tucker Murphy, who together with his father, Mike Murphy, have been at the forefront of the effort, said the project was an extension of the work already done at Bailey’s Bay.
“It’s been going pretty smoothly so far,” he said. “We had D&J Construction here lifting in the centre piece in the torrential rain, and we’ve had a few good volunteers here helping out.”
He said the project was due to be completed by mid-September or October at the latest, warning the public not to try to use the bridge until it was finished.
