Hardy St footbridge closure
The Hardy St footbridge will be closed until December 15 after a routine inspection found “severe rusting”, the Nelson City Council says. In a Facebook post, the council advised that an inspection of the steel hangars that support the deck found rust that needed to be removed, repaired and repainted with a four coat paint system that should last for the next 20 years. “Due to these necessary repairs, the bridge will be closed for longer than we initially anticipated. This bridge will now be closed till December 15.” The bridge connects the end of Avon Tce with Domett St.
