The new and improved Grigor Bridge is now open to traffic. To celebrate the opening of the new bridge I would like to invite the community to join me for a BBQ in the park near Conondale Pool. Join me on Friday 7th March 2014 from 3.30pm to 4.30pm for BBQ and a chat. In previous floods the bridge has been closed completely so it is great to see that this new bridge will provide a link for the local community and provide better flood immunity. The new bridge is two metres higher than the original 1929 single-land bridge. I can advise the local community that the remainder of the project, including demolition of the old bridge and removal of the temporary sidetrack, will be completed by the middle of the year. I want to again thank the community for their patience while this essential infrastructure upgrade was completed.
