Old Bridge should still be in open for walking

"Why are we not allowed to walk across the bridge on the as-new steel sidewalk?"

Comments in the March 26 paper (City one step closer to new foot bridge, Trail Times, March 26) says we are getting the new pipe bridge with our sidewalk bridge.  Excellent.

I also noted in the article that the sewer pipe on the bridge was repaired twice last year.

The repairs would require a truck and at least two people to do the repairs.

Why are we not allowed to walk across the bridge on the as-new steel sidewalk?

Who is supplying the reasoning and nobody else in City Hall objecting and letting us walk the bridge?

There must be at least three people in City Hall that know the sewer pipe is being repaired. A year and a half ago to go to the new one. Give us a break.

It might even increase the attendance at the aquatic centre of the West Trail residents.
