Johnson Street Bridge update
Further to my previous post on this interesting moving bridge replacement project, the City of Victoria has been reconsidering its options. Faced with the lack of any federal funding for the CAN$63m scheme, the city council have backed away from the replacement decision and called for further reports. New options will include not replacing the rail span, saving $15m, and taking into account a report on refurbishment presented by the highly articulate protest group johnsonstreetbridge.org.
