After decades of debate, heated opposition, and failed budget proposals, Kurtow has finally received a bridge that connects Daylum to Vangelos, two of the largest sub-districts in the area. With yesterday’s official opening of the Aster Bridge, many residents have already expressed their approval.

The Road and Transport Authority estimates that the new bridge will save motorists anywhere between 15 to 30 minutes of time on their daily commute, and is expected to cut down traffic in Vangelos by nearly 43%.

According to a recent poll, 15% of Palladians are unsatisfied with the bridge, with some citing that it’s an eyesore, while others worry that the costly construction will result in an upcoming tax increase. Though opposition is small, the critics are vocal, taking to the Net to express their concerns. Last Friday several protestors gathered at City Hall, condemning the bridge.

Graffiti was discovered on the bridge over the weekend, with authorities believing it to be the work of disgruntled protestors. The graffiti has since been removed.
