|March 2011 (-43.530 Degrees, 172.634 Degrees) Gloucester Street Bridge |
We must be in the original area that was Christchurch because the bridges are very old. According to the Christchurch Library Archives, the abutments on the Gloucester Street Bridge were carved from Oamaru, a local stone. The girders were made of a combination of cast and wrought iron. According to the New Zealand Historic Places Trust in 1937 the bridge was widened and the original stone abutments and wingwalls were replaced with concrete.
