Harwood Bridge span in position
THE final stage in the main carriageway of the bridge over the Clarence River at Harwood will be completed this morning, when the second section of a 140-foot truss span is floated into position.
Only decking of the carriageway and the installation of the lift-span remain.
Work is under way on the southern lift tower, which is nearing the halfway mark in its construction. The northern tower has been erected.
Work on the lift tower and installation of lifting equipment should be finished by June this year.
It is expected the bridge, which is more than a half mile long, will be open to traffic in August.
The first section of the last truss span was floated into position without mishap yesterday, when this picture was taken. The view from the lift tower looking south is shown.
