Update: Ashley Bridge (Cones Rd – Rangiora & Loburn / Ashley)

We should know early next month whether we will get the Government subsidy for a new bridge. If we get it, the subsidy will be about 60% of the total cost of $10 million plus.

The Council has budgeted for its share of design work in 2012-13, with building starting 2013-14.

    You dont need a new bridge-all you need is an ‘add-on’ for pedestrians/cylists.

  2. David Ayers Says:

    I’m afraid we do need a new bridge. The river is scouring out underneath the piles – that’s the main problem and there is a danger that the bridge will collapse.

    Another problem is that trucks are getting very close to touching their wing-mirrors as they pass from opposite directions.

  3. Lindsey Says:

    I agree with you David . I cross the bridge daily and have frequently witnessed near miss acidents with trucks and cars on the bridge, especially when cars are going too fast. look forward to a new bridge.
