Build a bridge

Hills Gazette - - LETTERS -

TOODYAY'S 1960s Duke Street pedes­trian bridge has been closed af­ter be­ing let fall into dis­re­pair.

As a mem­ber of the 1960s rail con­struc­tion crew, I recog­nise that the bridge was an in­te­gral part of the rail­way's de­sign to par­tially com­pen­sate Toodyay for be­ing split by the rail­way.

Any sup­port or ap­proval Western Gov­ern­ment Rail­ways gained was based upon the pro­vi­sion of the bridge and the pro­vi­sion of the bridge would have worked to­wards quelling any protest­ing.
