According to the Tabletalk newspaper front page article - Wooden bridge upgrades imminentupgrades to the wooden bridge will begin shortly now that a R20.5 million tender has been awarded to Ruwacon Construction for upgrading the wooden bridge at Woodbridge Island.

The National Department of Transport confirmed to Tabletalk: "Once the restoration work has been completed the (wooden) bridge will provide a fully functional non-motorised transport link between Woodbridge Island and the exisitng cycling and walking lane, and the IRT facilities that run along Marine Drive" (Source: TableTalk 18/4/2018)
