Tharwa bridge catches fire

Thumper 1 July 2008 17

Nothing online as yet but radio reports have been coming through suggesting that a fire has burnt a hole in the old Tharwa bridge.

ACT fire brigade and rural brigades attended and had the fire under control.

From all reports there is not a great deal of damage.

Bizarre how AFP media thought this was so important, 2 posts on the same day that it happened.

While they were doing some restoration work no less 😉

Stanhopeless and Hargreaves’ new home improvement show episode #1! special bloopers outtake of their cut price renovations segment. Either that or they snuck down to destroy the evidence of their stuff up, they’re still trying to think of ways to burn down the GDE.

maybe the act govt were going to say that it couldn’t be saved, so lets tear it down and put a concrete one in its place. (they don’t burn)

It wasn’t ACT Labor out burning documents before the next election, was it?

“set on fire” rather than “catches fire” i expect …

maybe it was a warning beacon to prevent cars from trying to cross??

Ya know it is bloody cold out there but lighting a fire to keep warm ON the bridge wasn’t the workers finest moment.

I heard on the wirless that it’s a 3m hole, accidentally lit by workers on the bridge.

Let’s cross that bridge when we come to it.
