Canberra’s Barton Highway has finally been reopened today after the collapse of a bridge under construction on August 14.
The road was expected to open two weeks after the incident. However, demolition work and evidence gathering for the investigation delayed the reopening.
Roads ACT’s Tony Gill said it has been a difficult time for everyone.
“People don’t expect to be encountering that on a day-to-day basis,” he said.
“While we have no control in some situations when these things happen, we are mindful of the fact that it does frustrate people and can often delay people on their way to and from work.”
