The Speight’s pedestrian bridge in Rattray St is covered with waterproof material while maintenance work is under way.

A Lion spokeswoman said Speight’s was doing maintenance work on the overbridge to resecure some panels and improve watertightness.

The overbridge would remain wrapped for about six weeks while the work took place, she said.
