Wasena Bridges: The Contrasts

This is the bridge at the east end of Wasena/Smith Parks yesterday.^

This is the newly rebuilt bridge at the West end about five minutes before the top photo was taken.^

This is a side view of the dry bridge.^

Above is a pretty dramatic example of the new low-water bridge in Wasena Parking working the way it is supposed to: allowing water to pass beneath it. The contrast with the other bridge in the park, which has not been replaced and remains more of a dam than a bridge, could not be more striking and the need for another bridge more pronounced.

The rain that caused this flooding was not all that much, frankly, but it was still enough to, in effect, close the park.
