Inverness MLA seeking repair of a Margaree Centre Bridge

The MLA for Inverness is hoping that a bridge will be repaired to working order rather than torn down for good. The Cranton Bridge in Margaree Centre

Inverness MLA Allan MacMaster

is┬ápermanently reduced to one lane, unless the bridge has to be closed because of it’s location on a flood plain.

Allan MacMaster says there is a plan to eventually replace the bridge, but there has also been some discussion of closing the old wood pier bridge, which is located close to a fire station. MacMaster says recent work to the Crowdis Bridge is good, but he wants to see more improvements to bridges in the area:
MacMaster says the old style of the bridge means that it takes a lot of damage when water levels rise, and he’d like to see a new structure built that doesn’t use wood piers for support. MacMaster adds that the bridge doesn’t need another band-aid; it should be replaced.
