    Wow..Looks so much more impressive..Didn’t realise the road bridge was 100 years old though..

  • Actually, I just read it and it is the information which is wrong. The Rail Bridge is the one which is over 100 years old.

    I thought that wasn’t right..Just isn’t the style of a hundred year old bridge…They got that wrong then…The rail bridge will always be my favourite no matter how impressive this new one will be…
