We’re excited to announce that our proposed budget for a cycling bridge has been approved by City Council. This new, innovative bridge will connect the Rotary Greenway Trail and cross the Otonabee River in Peterborough’s North End.
The bridge was praised by council and environmentalists as it will be made using nothing but recycled beverage cans and Canstruct, a locally manufactured product.
While structural engineers were unsure whether a bridge made of empty cans and plastic connectors would be able to hold pedestrians and cyclists, city council agreed that their opinion “barely even matters”.
“This will bring media attention and attract tourists to Peterborough and that’s the bottom line”, said a spokesperson from the Budget Committee.
Canstruct is very excited to be a part of such an innovative endeavour in Peterborough, and would like to wish you a Happy April Fool’s Day!
