Sand River Bridge still closed, pedestrians can now cross over

The temporary bridge is closed for cars but pedestrians can make use of it.

Municipal officials are on site monitoring the situation. Kindly note that the R330 falls under the jurisdiction of the Department of Roads and Transport – they are, therefore, in charge of the temporary bridge.

The municipality has been in contact with the Department to discuss the way forward.

More info will be available following the next disaster management meeting, scheduled for 1 pm today.

St Francis Chronicle will provide an update after this meeting, probably around 2.30 pm, if not before.
