Bridge repair Canberra style

Owen’s sent in this picture of Ginninderra Drive bridge reinforcement with this note:

Looks like they ran out of money for concrete, but no worries, a couple of bricks will hold the bridge up 🙂

So here’s the thing right: I studied physics…

Orrrrr, it’s an old pier and the bearing is still there, just not visible in the photo, and the bricks/wood are simply holding the canvas down.

nah… that’s to logical.

Aaaaaand, I walked under that bridge while work was starting up a few weeks back and that column wasn’t there. I reckon I’ll stick with my prediction. 😉

If that’s the case they really have done a sh*t job. Just look at where the wrap has split near the top. Pretty shoddy concrete job I would say. Also you can see the plate where the ‘bearing’ is. Looks to me like they are re-enforcing these piers rather than putting new ones in.
