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.
