Notes
  • See Harper Bridges: Tsomo, 1898.
  • Denis Beukman writes: "The Levey bridge at Tsomo was damaged (timber work only) by a tree washed down the river during a flood some time in 1958 or 1959. In the mid 1960's it was either sold or donated to a church group which dismantled it and moved it lower down the river."
