East of the Barbardoes Street Bridge, the Avon River forms a big ox-bow and at the other end are the two Fitzgerald Avenue Bridges. They are two span, precast voided slab bridges supported on seat-type abutments and with a pier wall in the river. Although it is not apparent in this photo, the riverbanks moved toward the river during the February earthquake, breaking some of the abutment piles.
