GUDGENBY BRIDGE - OFFICIAL OPENING


The bridge on Smith's Road across the Gudgenby River in the Australian Capital Territory unfortunately washed away in December 2010 however I have found this clipping from 1933 reporting the bridge's official opening placing the bridge at 77 years of age. Interestingly the article mentions the same willow trees, recently cut down and not removed, that may have contributed to the bridge's eventual destruction in the flood.
