Below: Just before 10pm last night members of the Classic and Vintage Motorclub of Eurobodalla drove their vehicles over the old classic lifting span bridge, the last ever drivers to do so. Thanks to the club for this sentimental footage, and yes the new concrete bridge is now partially open to traffic.
