Seven Mile Bridge

The next day we walked south along Highway 1 to seven mile bridge. On the right is the new bridge.

The old bridge was built 1908 – 1912 for a railway line but converted to road traffic in 1935.  At the time it was the longest bridge in the world. The new bridge was built in 1982.


The old bridge had a swing section for boat traffic, the new bridge has a raised section to allow continuous boat traffic. The old swing section was removed but the bridge itself left as a walkway.
