After almost four months, Coraki’s historic Glebe Bridge will reopen to traffic on December 6, just in time for the annual influx of tourists.

The opening marks the end of stage one work to upgrade the nine-span timber-beam bridge, which was built in 1905.

A structural assessment identified the need for major refurbishment work to the 108-year-old bridge and it has been closed to traffic since August.

Roads and Maritime Services advises that from 3.30pm Friday 6 December 2013 through until February next year, the Glebe Bridge will reopen to traffic and regular bus routes will be back in operation.

Stage two work is scheduled to start in February 2014.
