Inventory: Lists | Log | References | Condensed | Search

This is a list of the only bridge from the suspension bridge inventory crossing Amman River. Please note that different rivers with the same name will be grouped together. For example, selecting 'Bear Creek' shows bridges across several different Bear Creeks. Also, similarly named rivers are grouped separately. For example, 'River Dee' (UK) bridges are grouped separately from 'Dee River' (Australia) bridges. Wherever you see a "Bridgemeister ID" number you can click it to isolate the bridge on its own page.

Notes
  • Allan Agate writes: "I was the Project Engineer for this footbridge and can therefore confirm it was designed and built by David Rowell Ltd and almost certainly the last suspension bridge they built. It was a hybrid of earlier bridges making use of new bolted hot rolled sections instead of riveted composite tower construction. The date was about 1962/3." I am not sure of the provenance of the 1958 date associated with this bridge and I don't have reason to question Mr. Agate's recollection of the bridge completed a few years later.
