Tharwa Bridge to be Repaired Rather Than Replaced

By Ingeegoodbee 23 January 2008 29

666 ABC is reporting [ABC online link here, thanks to Spectra] that the ACT Government has decided that the Tharwa Bridge will be repaired rather than replaced.

The decision comes after the completion of a tender process for the replacement of the bridge at a reported cost of some $9 million dollars.

So, now that we have a decision lets see some bloody action people!

What’s Your opinion?

What is it with ACT and preserving pieces of shit architecture? The bridge is an obsolete piece of crap. Just like the Cameron Offices, its old, ugly and needs to be replaced by something better. Its not a wine you know, its not going to get any better with age.

Don Mckay’s resting place. Interesting. May have to channel Big Als’ statue for more information.

Actually 1890s, but they may have done some remedial work to the footings at some time.

Pity the tenderers, It would not be cheap pricing a bridge construction project, and then to be told NO we don’t really want a new bridge after all…

“IMHO the concrete poured on the Tharwa bridge foundings was done in the 70’s. Not exactly gripping stuff for around here, where most things were built in the 70’s.”

I hope it’s not Donald McKay’s last resting place!

If Jesus can go and live with the natives in the americas to assist in laying groundwork for the Mormons, the Romans can come and live in Tharwa to assist in making a claim to ACT Heritage.

Romans in Tharwa!

Wow….

I’m impressed. I thought the furthest Roman outpost was Velubilis in Moroccco

Tharwa, who’d have thought..

Portland cement was in its infancy in the 1820s, however cruder forms of cement and concrete have been around for thousands of years.
