    Calls for more to be done to protect roads and bridges on the West Coast

    Calls for more to be done to protect roads and bridges on the West Coast


    The Waiho Bridge, which washed away two weeks ago is due to re-open by Friday.

    It's cut off the road between Fox and Franz Josef.

    West Coast Tourism Chief Executive Jim Little says State Highway 6 needs proper permanent bridges and facilities in place so while they will always be at the mercy of severe weather events, things can be done to avoid losing bridges.
