GRANVILLE is expected to grow in leaps and bounds when the Mary Harbour project gets under way, but unless the State Government decides otherwise the suburb will still only be accessible via the Granville Bridge, which has closed several times due to flooding in the past few years.

MSF Sugar chief executive Mike Barry said there was no onus on the company to build another bridge that would not be susceptible to flooding or fix the existing bridge, saying that was still in the hands of the Department of Main Roads.

Mr Barry said it had been judged that the existing bridge was capable of bearing the load of extra traffic when the development went ahead.
