Capburn Bridge Closed for painting

*TRAIL SAFETY UPDATE: 9 July 2018 – Capburn Bridge open for riders

Work will start in the next couple of weeks on the repainting of the Capburn Bridge on the Otago Central Rail Trail.  As part of this work the bridge will be scaffolded and wrapped to contain waste paint as it is removed from the structure.  Due to the scale of containment required the bridge will be closed for the duration of the works with an alternative route being provided for trail users during this time.  This route is the current horse bypass for the bridge, however we will provide additional marking and signed as required.

Work is expected to start this week of 16th October 17 and be completed by 22nd December 17, however weather and other maintenance issues may extend this time frame.
