Halifax Harbour Bridges advises the public that firework shows can no longer be hosted on the Macdonald Bridge.
The main cable (orange in colour) is an integral part of a suspension bridge. As part of the Big Lift a dehumidification system has been added for the main cables. This system will reduce the potential for corrosion thereby extending the life of the bridge.
The system includes a waterproof membrane on the main cables. To ensure the integrity of the waterproof membrane it is not possible to have fireworks launched from the bridge.
