Magrudder-Bradford Bridge
Posted September 8, 2018, by Mike Kerkau (mjkerkau [at] gmail [dot] com)

When I was mapping a route to check out the other Magrudder Road bridge and the two Alamando Road bridge sites, I saw on satellite that there was something here, so I elected to drive through and see what it was.

Wonder why the builders decided to go with concrete railings on this one?
