Mandurah Coastal Times - - OPINION -

AS your old re­tir­ing Man­durah Bridge, I have to say it was very sad as you walked over me for the last time.

I guess once my new cousin next to me is up and run­ning I will go to where all old bridges go. I have seen many changes to Man­durah over my life­time and be­fore there was a new Es­tu­ary Bridge built I car­ried the whole work load, with­out even a creak, on my back.

Yes, I have seen many a fish caught below on my ramps and many a blue manna crab, even though I doubted the size, but I never com­plained.

Please now, don't shed a tear as when I even­tu­ally go it will be sad, but please learn to give the same love to my big new mate along­side me. Thank you and good­bye Man­durah. CHARLIE GIB­SON Fal­con
