Some good news for residents in Margaree Centre.  Inverness MLA Allan MacMaster says he’s received correspondence from the province  indicating a first step towards repairing the Cranton Bridge.



In the letter it states that department staff will soon begin the detailed design process to repair the existing structure and increase the weight capacity of the bridge.  It adds work will begin when funding is secured.

MacMaster says some maintenance has taken place, removing brush that can collect at the footings and traffic lights are maintained to keep the traffic on the bridge to one lane
