The Buffalo Bridge was a combined rail and road bridge constructed out of timber and was completed by the Cape Government on 1 January 1908. The Buffalo Bridge was replaced in 1935-36 by the double decker Bruce-Bays Bridge. Some fragmentary remains of the curved south approach of the Buffalo Bridge are still visible on the West Bank of the Buffalo River.
