Seabraes Bridge opening

The new Seabraes Bridge
I have queried with the City Engineer when the new bridge at Seabraes will be open to the public.   It is a little behind schedule (originally planned for a 'soft opening' in late May with an official opening in June).

The City Engineer updated me late yesterday as follows :

"Just to confirm that the Official Opening will not take place on 16 June 2015 as the Transport Minister cannot make that date.

Instead the Official Opening will be arranged for August/September after the schools have returned from the summer holidays.

Now, the bridge is currently planned to open on 16 June without anything official happening but we will be making a press release in advance of the opening."

The important thing is to get this new bridge opened so I am pleased there is now certainty about this.   It looks really good and will give a great new link between Riverside and the Seabraes/Perth Road areas.
