Bridging the way towards new era

THE iconic tower on Maclean's 110-year-old McFarlane Bridge is back looking better than ever.

The tower was taken off in October last year and transported to a dry dock in Ashby where it was dismantled, stripped and repainted.

The bridge was temporarily closed Monday and Tuesday this week as the tower was reinstalled as part of RMS improvements.
