Divers were sent into a culvert on Airport Way last week.

The company that built the Golden Ears Bridge sent divers into a culvert under a road in Pitt Meadows last week to investigate what’s causing it to collapse.

Bilfinger Berger and TransLink have yet to report back to the city on what was found inside the channel, which runs under Airport Way.

“They wanted to go in to check on the integrity of the material because they will be involved with correcting in,” said city director of operations Kim Grout.

The city has made TransLink aware of the broken culvert and other defects associated with the construction of the toll bridge and its surrounding road network, but has yet to receive written acknowledgement of those flaws from the provincial transportation authority.

The deadline for handing over the road network, which includes Airport Way and a walking trail behind Wildwood Crescent, to the city was Nov. 30.

Spokesperson Ken Hardie said TransLink will be acknowledging those defects in writing by the end of the year.

“We will cover off any deficiencies and find out if there are any others and just basically get the whole thing tidied up,” he added.
