The Tin Bridge - South Grafton
The 'Tin Bridge' crosses the North Coast Rail Line and links Federation St with the Pacific Highway. It was closed to vehicular traffic over a decade ago.
The funny thing about the Tin Bridge is that it is actually made out of wood. As you can see it is in a terrible state.
I have often wondered why it was nicknamed the Tin Bridge and my theories are: the sound it made when you drove over it (tinny), perhaps corrugated iron was used on it's sides, or maybe it was built cheap.
