Christmas fun & frivolity
Cairns' Pedestrian Overpass
On Saturday night some of the Cairns residents stayed up late and watched as the pedestrian bridge was manoeuvred over the highway as part of the Cairns Bruce Highway Upgrade project.
The highway had to be shut for a few hours as the main part of the bridge span was slowly put into place and lifted by massive cranes onto its supports.
The other two sections will be done over the next couple of days. It has been a massive project with the effects being felt by the village quite literally as works have been happened next door to the village.
We have watched the progress over the past two years and it’s all now coming to an end. Some residents say they will use the overpass to "visit the other side."
