The official ceremony is done and now motorists are waiting to be able to cross the bridge.
Lanes are expected to be open this afternoon, however there is still another layer of asphalt to be laid and line markings to be completed.
It may not be until tomorrow that the bridge is open.
In the meantime please don't head down to the bridge simply for a drive over this afternoon as there is concern congestion may occur.
