DELAYS to the construction of the new Candlagan Creek Bridge mean it may not be open in time for the Christmas holidays.
A Eurobodalla Shire Council spokeswoman said if the bridge, on Coronation Drive at Broulee, was not completed by Christmas, an alternative plan would be put in place.
“Suitable arrangements will be put in place to allow residents and visitors to enjoy the Candlagan Creek area over the holidays,” she said.
The contractor started work on September 18 after being delayed on a previous job.
Wet weather, plan modifications and delays on securing environmental approvals for the temporary footbridge also caused delays.
The existing bridge piles were located contrary to original plans, meaning the new bridge plans needed refinement.
Environment approvals for the temporary footbridge took longer than expected due to the bridge being in a marine sanctuary.
Initially, council tried to repair the bridge, but found the concrete cancer was too severe and the bridge needed replacing.
Council contributed $0.28 and was able to secure $2.22 million from federal and state governments.
The temporary pedestrian bridge will be built on the upstream side of the bridge.
The Broulee and Mossy Point Community Association fears the bridge will not be open in time for the summer holidays.
