MIRAMICHI, N.B. — According to the local Tory MLA, Miramichi residents shouldn’t be concerned about the one-year delay in fixing the Centennial Bridge.

Miramichi-Bay-du-Vin provincial representative Michael Malley says he’s spoken to Department of Transportation engineers and believes locals shouldn’t worry about the delay in the resurfacing of the 34-year-old Centennial Bridge.

“The bridge ain’t going to fall down overnight,” Malley says. “If it was a structural concern, I would have stood up in the legislature and fought for it.”

“There was an urgent call for tenders and now the urgency has passed. Some say the bridge has structural problems, others say that isn’t a concern,” City councillor John McKay tells local media. “We don’t know exactly what the story is. I personally would like to see the work proceed because the province has the money.”
