Bridge out of bounds until work finished, parks department warns
A new Railway Trail bridge over an inlet is still out of bounds, the parks department warned today.
A spokesman said the part-completed footbridge over Flatts Inlet was still a construction site and the bridge had still to be completed.
He added: “The Friends of the Bermuda Railway Trail have erected scaffolding to access the bridge and install the bridge deck planks.
“This access is restricted to the site volunteers and workers only.”
The spokesman said the bridge would be accessible to the public once is was completed and signed off as safe, which is expected to happen next spring.
He added: “Until such time, and subject to the necessary approvals and Bermuda National Park Regulations, we urge the public to refrain from accessing the bridge for any reason.”
The spokesman said that no bridge should be used for fishing or diving.
