Happy 80th Birthday - Grafton Bridge


On the 19th of July 1932 the Grafton Bridge opened and the missing link between Sydney and Brisbane was completed: the mighty Clarence River had finally been bridged by rail and road.
You might be wondering what the funny little house stuck on the side was for (it hasn't been used since 1969) but you will have to wait until tomorrow for a unique engineering surprise from the past.

  1. Imagine the traffic that has passed over it in the last 80years ....
    I'm sure there would have been many famous names who have made the journey from south to north.
    I look forward to finding out about that little house on the edge. Happy week-end Mark.

  2. This is so similar to the little pill box on the old Pyrmont Bridge.
