Mangled car removed
The mangled Toyota Celica car that smashed through railings on the Peel Street Bridge on Saturday night was removed yesterday.
“The current focus for the Peel Street Bridge intersection is to make sure the site is safe for regular use for drivers and pedestrians,” a Gisborne District Council spokesman said.
“We’re assessing how bad the damage is to the two bridge-side traffic lights and barrier rail.”
A temporary roundabout remains in place at the intersection.
“We won’t know how long the traffic lights will be out and the temporary roundabout is in place until the damage assessments are complete.”
