DEFECTS to surface coating have been detected on the roadside safety barriers of the Gawler Mill Inn Bridge, delaying completion of the project.
GAWLER locals have been advised Murray Street will still be “open for business” this weekend, despite impromptu plans to close the
Mill Inn bridge to traffic to allow for construction works.
GAWLER Council staff have admitted that there was “no design undertaken” prior to budgeting for restorative works on one of the town’s most prominent bridges, resulting in an extra $2 million of unexpected project costs.
RESTORATION works on the iconic Gawler Mill Inn bridge are expected to begin in August or September this year.
