After much anticipation, the shared pedestrian bridge over Moona Moona Creek has officially been opened.
The $1 million bridge is a key point in the popular Road the Bay Walk (RTBW), and was officially opened on Wednesday, August 22.
South Coast MP Shelley Hancock, Shoalhaven mayor Amanda Findley and several community members cut the ribbon on the new bridge with excitement.
“This is a fantastic day for the local community who will now be able to use the bridge to safely cross the creek dividing Huskisson from Vincentia,” Mrs Hancock said.
“I am thrilled that I was able to secure the full amount of funding to construct the bridge and deliver it for use by the community in just one year instead of three.”
Ms Hancock said the improvement would support the preservation of the natural environment while also encouraging tourism.
“These improvements will not only improve the safety of pedestrians and cyclists but increase tourism in the area and protection of the environment that forms the natural platform and experience of the RTBW,” she said.
