Swing bridge repairs under way

Repairs to the St George's swing bridge are under way, the Ministry of Public Works has said.

Last week, materials for a Bailey bridge which had sat in Kindley Field Park since January — gathering rust from the elements and criticism from the Progressive Labour Party — was removed in time for Cup Match festivities.

A Ministry spokeswoman did not answer a request on what had happened to the Bailey bridge, which had initially been intended to allow vehicles access across Ferry Reach while the damaged swing bridge was fixed.

“The repair contract is now under way. The Ministry will provide an update in the near future,” she said.
