As a battery runs its course, electrons travel from the anode to the cathode. The electrodes will quickly stop flowing if they build up too much on one side. The purpose of the salt bridge is to allow anions to diffuse through the salt bridge from the more negative solution to the more positive solution so that the solution stays neutral and a negative charge does not build up. The salt bridge/porous disk just enables ion transfer.
