The Salmon Weir Pedestrian Bridge in Ballina has reopened this weekend ahead of schedule.

The bridge has been closed for almost a year, after worrying levels of corrosion were detected on its support structures.

Work started on the bridge last Monday and it was anticipated it would take around three weeks to complete.

However, local councillor Mark Duffy confirmed to Midwest News today that the contractors worked around the clock and the bridge has now reopened.
