Our Bridge


Guy Fawkes Day, the Fifth of November, is the date set down of late for the long-awaited opening of the new Roebuck Road bridge. "Photo News", from the day the "Closed" signs were erected on the old bridge, has followed (photographically) the fortunes of both the old and the new structures. The picture above will be the last of the many taken during the building of the new bridge. Taken last Sunday, it shows the concrete decking almost completed. Our next pictures of the bridge should show the ribbon being cut and the traffic flowing once more from Wi Pere St. to Roebuck Road.
