Very strong bridge

Re: The Lelata Bridge 

The Lelata bridge is one of the longest serving bridges. 

Sturdy German made. Also some good memories. When river is swollen, we used it as a launching point for ‘whitewater’ rafting (2 or 3 banana trunks held with a stick thru middle) all the way to where Transam is at Malifa. 

With all those concrete channels holding water in, it will be way over the speed limit when it hits Vaisigano Bridge? 

And when there’s a spring tide pushing back, are the walls high/strong enough?
