City replacing six Community Forest pedestrian bridges

The current bridges allow for pedestrian access to some of the smaller courses in the Community Forest, and increased traffic has upped the need for maintenance. The new bridges will have a load capacity of 5,000 tonnes, so that equipment like a mini excavator will be able to inspect and maintain the trails. 

Now that the tender’s been awarded, the company will build the bridges, and Public Works staff will install them bridges once they are received.
