Bridge talks go on… and on

THE Liberal Opposition and the Derwent Valley Council have had another go at seeking answers on the fate of the Bridgewater Bridge, with no apparent response from the State Government. Opposition Leader Will Hodgman and Lyons MHA Rene Hidding met the council’s mayor and acting general manager last Thursday to discuss local issues including the bridge.

“After being closed for water traffic for years, the Government is proposing to work on the bridge next year, with a possible completion date of sometime in 2010 in mind. One can only assume that they intend to reopen the bridge to water traffic during the election campaign. However, there are no guarantees that the bridge will even get that far. Successive infrastructure ministers have stonewalled calls to reopen the bridge,” Mr Hodgman said in a statement.
