The bridge was officially named and opened by the local town Mayor hailing a great collaborative project by all involved in installing the much needed bridge for the local community. The local residents all came out to see and mark the grand opening of the bridge by the Mayor and gave interviews to the local press and media giving positive feedback on the project as a whole.

           

The bridge was named “The Albert Hugo Friday Bridge” named after a World War II RAF pilot who tragically lost his life nearby and to remember his sacrifice to the country it is a befitting way in honouring him.
