Edermine Bridge will be closed to traffic for some time after a tractor crashed through the steel parapet last night narrowly avoiding a catastrophic situation.
It appears that the tractor was coming from the east side when a loaded trailer tipped up causing the tractor to crash into the siding leaving significant damage to the railings.
No injuries are reported.
Known as Marmion Bridge, the single lane bridge, facilitates traffic from the R772 Enniscorthy- Oylegate M11 roundabout across the river Slaney to Bree.
It was officially opened by Wexford hurling legend Nicky Rackard on August 24th 1975.
There is no bridge operating between Enniscorthy and Wexford causing great inconvenience for users who need to cross the river Slaney for work or business.
Killurin Bridge is currently closed to traffic to facilitate scheduled repairs.
