      It’s going to happen. No point in even opening it, the whole thing needs to be replaced.

  2. Micro says:

    How about you do that late at night? Like at 3am when there’s virtually no traffic to disrupt.

    So the new developers of the St. George Hotel can get across I presume.

    • Micro says:

      As if that’s ever actually going to happen

  5. Gabbs says:

    It didn’t say anything about the bridge being open or swinging open

    • AIR HORN says:

      suggest you re read the article it does say opening/closing

  6. Space Ship 2.5 says:

    why in the name of the almighty would you tempt fate by opening that pile of rusted cra* in mid week at near mid day. Hope you have a tug on standby to pull it shut and welders ready to weld it closed.

  7. I can't believe it's not butter says:

    How dumb can these people get? They wouldn’t even test it a few months after they closed it from opening. Let’s hope the bridge doesn’t collapse.
