THE MINISTRY of Transport and Works, through contractor Crane and Equipment Limited, has installed a temporary bridge called a Bailey Bridge in the Rock Hall/Turner’s Hall area in St Andrew.

The bridge is now open to all traffic.

The bridge, known as Bawden’s, was closed in January of this year due to damage to its abutment walls and as a result traffic was unable to travel from Turner’s Hall to the Rock Hall junction.

The Bailey Bridge which is a steel structure, was last used on the East Coast road in 2004. It has been placed over the existing Bawden’s bridge and can accommodate cars and large vehicles. (PR)
