Pound Street figs reduced to stumps

POUND Street is looking very different after a weekend of pruning and clearing in preparation for the expansion of the street for the new bridge.

With work starting early Saturday morning, crews on scene began taking the branches off the large fig trees that lined the street.

Once most of the foliage had been removed and taken off site, the bulk of the trees were removed.

The iconic Grafton trees have been reduced to stumps before they are removed completely.

The new bridge will meet the Grafton side of the river at Pound Street and the current plans are to widen the road into four lanes.
