Blue Bridge almost gone

Victoria's Johnson Street Bridge, also known as the 'Blue Bridge' is shut down again today after workers began installing the new deck span on Friday.

The work was delayed by high winds, but has since resumed.

“One of the parts of this project is we have this big piece of steel hanging on cables up in the air while we pull a barge through, and we simply can’t do that with winds that are gusting up to 40 and 50 km/h – it’s dangerous,” said project director Jonathan Huggett.
