  • GAP: Completed c.1912. Destroyed by earthquake, 1931.
  • Hamish Kynoch writes: "This bridge over the Mangatewai River was located on Boyle Road. It was damaged in the large earthquake in 1931, but stood for many years, and was used occasionally for livestock, with wooden planking over the crack in the concrete deck. It was demolished about 1970 by dynamiting the anchor blocks at one end of the bridge. There was no replacement and the old road is now closed. Another bridge of the same design was located about three miles away on Wilson Cutting Road."
