Rail Bridge Back Over It's Tracks

8 months to the day after its collapse, the Dunedin Railway Station pedestrian bridge was put back together again.

Cranes inched the main section of the 104 year old bridge into place early yesterday morning.

The 14 tonne replacement sections were modelled on the original bridge by Zeal Steel at a cost of ($240 000)two hundred and forty thousand dollars.

The bridge is expected to reopen later this week once the safety netting has been installed and safety checks completed.

The DCC, Port Otago and the former Toll Holdings are still in negotiations over which party is liable for the incident.
