This is a lovely bridge, we don't have many bridges like this in my part of the world, mainLy timber bridges here. I would love to photograph this one!

Thanks both mohammad & In The Bush!

The unusual thing about this bridge is the fact that the arched portion on the left was the original 2 lane bridge built in the early 1900s. The steel portion on the right was added as an expansion to 4 lanes in the 1970s.

I see what you mean, Michael, I was wondering what the sections towards the photographer were, but it is obvious once you have explained it! That sure is a long time between the building of the original bridge, and the addition! I see a lot of this adding onto bridges here, but usually both sections are timber. And sometimes steel in the newer section. If you look at my bridge tag you will see the underside of quite a few Western Australian bridges :-) (We have a group for local bridges too).
