Chota Motala bridge: hydraulic munchers to ‘eat’ concrete

2011-09-03 00:00

CHOTA Motala bridge will not be demolished with explosives, but hydraulic munchers will be put in place to “eat” the concrete into small pieces, site manager of the interchange Bradley Naidoo said yesterday.

He said people should be able to see progress by this morning.

The N3 will be closed for the operation with traffic diverted through town.

The route for the Spar Weekend Witness Women’s 10/5 km race tomorrow is from Park Drive, left into College Road, right into Topham Road, via John Barker Avenue to Alexandra Road and back to the park, into Princess Elizabeth Drive, into Park Drive and ending at The Oval.
