The Sullivan Mine and Railway Historical Society wants to bridge the gap between two of Kimberley’s biggest tourist attractions.
The society believes another wooden bridge would help increase traffic to Kimberley’s Underground Mining Railway.
President Mick Henningson says this has been a topic of conversation among the society for many years – after a number of the noteable wooden crossings were constructed around the community.
Henningson says the bridge would go over Mark Creek and create a better connection to the Platzl, the city’s trail system and other neighbourhoods.
He says the bridge would be in a beautiful location.
“The creek’s in its natural state in that area.” says Henningson. “A bridge across in the trees – it’d be a good place to cross the [creek] because the line of sight is really good there.”
There is no timeline on this project currently but Henningson says he would like to see it done by next summer.
