They simply occurred to know of a non-functioning railroad bridge in an space that suited our functions. And, higher but, the realm in query was keen to advertise tourism. Local roads being what they’re, their greatest probability to do that rested in revitalizing an outdated rail system. This included changing the primary decking of the bridge in query, which engineers had deemed structurally unsound. The bridge was not constructed fully in 1906 as has been reported. That bridge was partially destroyed by the retreating Germans throughout the Second World War earlier than being rebuilt (the present bridge is, in reality, one among two very comparable ones within the space, neither of which is a protected monument). Bottom line: to open up the realm to tourism, the bridge wanted to go. And we have been solely too completely satisfied to assist out.
