First of a few articles recently about the new bridge over the rail lands being closed already.
The bridge was designed by Chilean sculptor Francisco Gazitua; its name, translated, means “Bridge of Light,” and it was, as a press release by CityPlace developers Concord Adex noted, “chosen to signify the link between North and South and the connection between the two countries that came together to build it—Canada and Chile.” The bridge required, the press release continued, ”extreme care and precision…with its design, construction, and installation.”
By the night of its grand opening, though, the City of Toronto had ordered it closed, deeming it unsafe.
