The Dunedin City Council is set to start removing what remains of the historic Sutton suspension bridge next week.
The 19th century bridge, over the Taieri River on Sutton-Mount Ross Rd, was destroyed when floodwaters swept through the area in July's floods.
The council said in a statement today work to salvage and store the materials from the Sutton-Mt Ross bridge would start on Monday next week and was expected to take around six weeks.
The council said work on a report examining options for rebuilding the bridges was continuing, but no decision had been made at this stage.
"The Dunedin City Council will review the report and present it to the Strath Taieri and Mosgiel-Taieri Community Boards before a decision is made on the future of the bridges."
