Notes
  • Completed 1890's. According to a sign at one of the remaining Mount Morgan suspension bridges, "Upper Dee suspension bridge spanned from Byrnes Parade to River Street but was washed away during fierce flooding on 21 April 1928." The Mount Morgan web site mentions that the bridge had already been "converted to a pile-supported bridge" by the time it was destroyed in 1928.
