Goff Bridge

The old Goff Bridge was a steel through truss while the new bridge is tied arch. Itís not exactly a model for the new bridge, but the new arch bridge is defiantly a nicer structure than a pre-stressed girder bridge.

I was able to find a photo on ITD's Flickr site of the old bridge during the construction of the new.

I may be wrong, but the narrow bridge that was at this crossing was used as a "model" for this present-day Goff Bridge. Do we have any pictures of the 'old' bridge that stood at this crossing?

Dear Sir

I am a Bridge Consulting Engineer in Australia and am presently writing a book on "Lock Up Devices in Structural Engineering". I am interested in knowing how two lock up (LUD)Devices fitted on each abutment of the Goff Bridge are performing. Please contact by email or phone 61 3 62240105.

Many Thanks.
