New Breakwater Bridge
We often drive cross the Barwon River at Breakwater, under the old railway line, and it's always busy. The new bridge is at last being built - I posted about it over a year ago and it's been a slow process in getting under way. Though it was cold yesterday - about 11 degrees Celsius, we went for a stroll along the river to see how it was going. Two large cranes were active, very noisy and sounding the like the battle of the bands. Then I took a photo from our side of the river. The plan has meant the dislocation of several families as their houses were compulsorily bought and demolished. It's a $63 million project they say, but that's sure to blow out as all government tasks seem to do.
