A Bridge To Somewhere.

The Koksilah River Trestle, built by local loggers and farmers in 1920, is said to be the tallest free-standing wood structure in the Commonwealth. Whether it is or not, it is a work of great beauty and a monument to engineering brilliance. The federal, provincial and local governments are kicking in about $4 million to restore it. Western Forest Products has offered to supply the timbers, and the woodworkers' union is offering the skilled labour of its members.

In favour.

Tom Hawthorn tells the story.

Nice to read a good thing story for a change. I saw this tressel quite a few years ago. It is a very impressive sight.

Stunning bridge. Seemingly great cooperation. Too bad the trains won't be allowed back on.
