  1. That’s a wild river in flood. That bridge must be pretty solid to withstand that on a regular basis. I take it you don’t live too close to the river bank.

    1. It does get a good amount of water flowing in flood, around one million megaliters a day. The bridge is low so any logs being washed downriver won’t bash into the bridge. The old wooden bridge was there for over fifty years. I live a fair way from the river.
