With the King George VI Lift Bridge now closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic, Landform Civil Infrastructure Inc. have removed both the east and west trunnion pit access hatches which exposed the original, custom large bridge span mechanical gears that are required to lift the bridge to facilitate safe passage of marine watercraft. Starting tomorrow (Saturday, April 25th) and continuing on Monday (April 27th), crews will begin installing a suspended working platform directly below the east span to facilitate sand blasting and painting of all steel surfaces in due time.
