Weir bridges to remain closed for repairs
Date published: 13 February 2019
The bridges at Black Weir and Aplins Weir will remain closed for repairs following the unprecedented flood.
Repairs to the bridge structures – such as pathways, piers and handrails – will commence after the water recedes.
Aplins Weir Bridge will also require engineering assessments before it can reopen.
Council is aiming to reopen the bridges in 6 to 8 weeks.
