Rowan Ramsay in Favour of Restoring Port Augusta Old Bridge

Member for Grey Rowan Ramsay is in favour of restoring the Great Western Bridge.

Council has received a letter from the minister showing his support.

He's acknowledged Yorkeys Crossing should be developed as an alternative heavy transport crossing, but says in the near future, the old bridge would at least provide an alternative route for emergency vehicles.

At a cost of $5 million, Mayor Sam Johnson says it's the cheapest solution.
