RMS to spend $5m giving Ballina Street bridge a paint job

THE Ballina Street Bridge in Lismore is about to get a $5 million makeover.

Last year Cr Simon Clough suggested the bridge should be painted in rainbow colours, however it seems his suggestion has been ignored by Roads and Maritime Services (RMS), which is likely to keep with the more traditional grey.

Work is expected to start on Monday and run until June 2016. Motorists may experience minor delays and traffic control will be in place.
