    The Wardell Bridge is a lifting bridge on the Pacific Highway just north of us. This bridge crosses the Richmond River & has seen constant work on it for the past few years. There are frequent traffic delays & this pic was taken 3 & 3/4 years ago. The delays are still happening. :roll:

    Odd looking bridge. Never seen a lifting bridge before.

    Thanks Joy!

    The centre section, of the bridge roadway, lifts up to allow larger boats & yachts to travel through it. Most of these bridges lift at an angle, not straight up like an elevator, as this bridge does.
