The Salmon Weir Bridge in Ballina is set to reopen in early March.
That news has been confirmed by local Independent Councillor Mark Duffy who says following a lot of public pressure, there is development in re-opening the pedestrian bridge that was closed last year due to structural issues.
A contractor has now been appointed to carry out the necessary works.
Councillor Duffy told Midwest News today that the timeline for reopening the bridge is estimated at the beginning of March.
The cost of the repair work, to this relatively new bridge, is not yet in the public domain.
