DRIVERS were forced to avoid the city’s low level bridge after it was cut for the fourth time in two months by floodwaters.

The bridge was closed just before noon on Thursday, and reopened three hours later after the water had subsided.

Well above average rainfall since late July has resulted in a number of floods for Bathurst, Perthville and Georges Plains.
