Dennis Walters, a Civil Engineering graduate from the Universities of Cape Town and Pretoria, is a Consulting Civil & Structural Engineer with his own practice in East London. His work takes him throughout the Eastern Cape Province, where he has been able to regularly inspect all the existing bridges described in this book. His main historical interest is in old bridges, both stone arch and iron lattice girder. He was a contributor to the Institution of Civil Engineers Biographical Dictionary of Civil Engineers. He discovered Joseph Newey while researching stone arch bridges, and found that he was involved in almost every road bridge erected in the Eastern Cape during the last quarter of the century. A large amount of information has been accumulated over the past twelve years from which this important addition to the record of Civil Engineering achievement in South Africa has been made.
