Contractors are carrying out maintenance work on the Karoro Creek bridge near Kaka Point this week.

Clutha District Council communications co-ordinator Jamie Shaw said scouring protection was being applied to the bridge's abutments (supports).

The ''normal maintenance work'' was being carried out as part of the council's 2013-14 bridge repairs contract, which was awarded to Fulton Hogan, he said.
