Fukuoka Wants To Turn Bridge Into Public Space

Fukuoka City is looking to create a new public space on a temporary bridge. The bridge will be built by the national government when it begins construction next fiscal year to replace the 40-plus-year-old Haruyoshi Bridge that spans the Nakagawa River on Route 202. The temporary bridge will be used for detours while the new bridge is being built, and the City aims to take over the bridge once construction is complete in 2020. City Hall is holding sessions with local residents to solicit ideas on how to use the new space. Some have proposed using the space for music events, while others have suggested using it as a place for taxis to queue in order to reduce nighttime taxi congestion. Source: Nishinippon Shimbun 3/3
