This Day in History: 1950-01-20

Work had commenced on the building of Connor’s Bridge (No. 631), under the supervision of foreman Mr. D. Hughes of the Main Roads Dept. The 611-ft. bridge over the Avon River on the Goomalling-Toodyay Road, was built of wandoo (white gum) and jarrah, being the third bridge constructed on that site.  The project took 12 months to complete.
