A structure found along the line between the Bloedrivier Station building ensemble and the Culvert north of Bloedrivier Bridge linking the NATAL GOVERNMENT RAILWAYS to the ZUID AFRIKAANSCHE REPUBLIEK DEPARTEMENT VAN SPOORWEGEN Voetpadsdrif-Vryheid Branch Line. The suspended girder bridge located between two double-arched stone abutments has been plundered for scrap metal and all diagonal bracings are harvested leaving the structure precariously unstable!
