Swing Bridge closing early tomorrow

Urgent repairs will prevent marine traffic travelling underneath the Swing Bridge on Mullett Bay as of 9.00am tomorrow.

A Ministry of Public Works spokesperson said the temporary closure will allow the contractor to erect scaffolding, making it impossible for most marine traffic to pass under the bridge.

However, some smaller boats will still be allowed through while approaching from the south.

By mid-December, most of the obstructions to marine traffic will be cleared, added the spokesperson.
