Most will admit that the work on the bridge up until summer, when it was suspended for virtually four months, had had little real affect on traffic – a not insurmountable inconvenience – so the thought of a south-bound lane of Rules Bridge being out of action up until Easter will not have most wringing there hands in desperation – after all, it’s only 650 metres of single-lane traffic involved.
Work was originally going to recommence in September but the tail end of the high season was taken into consideration and the recommencement work put off until after the bank holiday of the 12th of October.
Finally, as in the first phase of the roadworks, the whole bridge will have to be closed for a period of 20 days and traffic diverted down the N-323, which runs above reservoir on the western side. Dates haven’t been given for this but the Ministry of Public Works has promised that it will not coincide with a festive period; i.e., Christmas.
