The truck driver at the centre of a mangled mess on the Burlington Skyway bridge heads back to court in early October.

34-year old Sukhvinder Singh Rai will go before a judge on October 3rd, after his Friday court appearance was held over.

He is expected to plead not guilty.

The Brampton man is charged with impaired driving in connection with a crash in late July.

The bucket on Rai's truck was left up and it smashed into an overhead truss.

Word from Ontario's Transportation Ministry is the bridge still needs major repairs.

Workers will need to lift a steel beam across 4 lanes of traffic.

A temporary fix was put in just after the crash but its a permanent solution is needed.

The Ministry is not able to say yet when the work might start but lanes of traffic will have to be shut down to complete the project.

When it comes to the cost, officials are tight-lipped.

If it can be proven in court the truck driver was negligent, he province can look to recover the cost from the driver and his employer.
