Their bridge again: restoration of the Tasman Bridge

Australia, 1977

Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

On January 5th, 1975, the Tasman Bridge in Hobart, tragically collapsed, sinking a ship and her cargo and dismembering sections of the bridge in seconds. For 2 1/2 years Hobart was without a central road link across the river, whilst reconstruction work was underway. This was a test of skill of the engineers, and the restoration was a great challenge to all concerned. Work on the project is shown through the various stages until final completion.
