Little Sandy Bridge is back up and running
Posted 44 days ago
Little Sandy Bridge has officially been reopened to the public, after Stage One repairs wrapped up this week.
The bridge linking Elderslie to Camden was temporarily closed in early 2020, due to damage caused by storms and heavy rain fall. Stage One repair works, which began last month, saw that damage rectified so Little Sandy Bridge could be reopened for public access and convenience. Landscaping and a permanent handrail are the final aspects of the first stage, expected to be complete next week.
Camden Council is now investigating Stage Two for the project, which will provide a long-term solution to reduce the risk of damage from future flood events. Updates regarding Stage Two will be provided closer to the implementation of this portion of the project.
Mayor of Camden, Cr Theresa Fedeli, said she was excited to see Little Sandy Bridge back up and running.
“This project, as with all the projects we complete here at Council, is about making our area safe, functional and even more beautiful,” Cr Fedeli said.
“I know it was difficult for many of our residents, myself included, to see the floods earlier this year ravage areas across Camden. Little Sandy Bridge was one of these areas and I’d like to thank our residents and visitors for their patience while we made sure Little Sandy Bridge was safe to reopen and use.
“We now look to Stage Two, to focus on making this even better for our community.”
