Contractors fell a large gum tree on the corner of Riselaw and South Rds, Dunedin, yesterday to make way for a multimillion-dollar overbridge at Lookout Point.

The bridge is part of stage two of the Caversham Valley safety improvement project, and will connect Riselaw and Mornington Rds over State Highway 1.

Construction is expected to start in September.

Traffic on Riselaw and South Rds was held up intermittently yesterday as the tree was removed.
