Spokesman for the community-based Beach Watch Network, Alec Morgan, says the group is still opposed to any bridge being built."As soon as there are indications that work is about to start, people will be on the beach.

"There will be peaceful protests and non-violent direct action aimed at stopping the bridge from being built."
