Squatters evicted from N7 bridge again

Squatters living close to the N7 bridge on Vanguard Drive have been evicted.

The eviction process, which started on Wednesday, saw angry residents clash with City officials and Metro Police as they began breaking down their homes. It is believed that a number of residents, who were housed in the Factreton community hall had left to return to the bridge.

Mayco member for Housing Dan Plato says that there is no way people will be allowed to move back due to the dangers associated with residents living under the bridge.

The N7 bridge was damaged by a fire that destroyed 70 shacks and claimed the lives of two men in October last year.
