The Kilmore and Madras Street Bridges are very plain looking single span T girder bridges on seat-type abutments that were built in 1968. The two streets are perpendicuar and so they cross the Avon River at right angles from each other. You can see a few spalls where the superstructure banged against the abutment on the Kilgore Street Bridge during the recent earthquake. I'm not sure why those rusty steel girders are sticking up between the two bridges.
