New Zealand's Bridges: Worcester Street Bridge across the Avon River in Christchurch

March 2011 (-43.531 Degrees, 172.633 Degrees) Worcester Street Bridge
The Worcester Street Bridge is a single span reinforced concrete arch bridge with stone facing and a cast iron railing. There are pedestals at the four corners, one of which holds a plaque that states the bridge was commissioned by Mayor C. P. Hulbert in 1885.  The bridge has a wide brick deck that carries pedestrians and a tram along with benches and pots of flowers along the railings.
