Repairs to bridge after vandalism


Wellington Shire Council has announced repairs to the Historic Swing Bridge in Sale will commence this year.

The bridge was vandalised in April last year, which caused an axle to bend and the bottom roller beam to crack. Upon inspection, a number of other age-related cracks were discovered. The bridge has since been out of action.

The cracks caused safety concerns. But safe access to the bridge will be completed this month and the repair works commencing not long after.
