Unique SA bridge awarded 2019's National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark of the Year

BY: Traveller24 - 10 October 2019

The Kaaimansrivier Railway Bridge in Wilderness was built in 1928, ferrying Outeniqua Choo Tjoe passengers to-and-fro across the waters below with breathtaking views of the valley. Unfortunately, floods in 2006 closed down its use and since has stood standstill instead as a tourist attraction rather than a functional route.

But it hasn't been forgotten, and on Wednesday it received a reward for its architectural prowess - the 2019 National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark of the Year.
