  • After some years the bridge kept on breaking down so they destroyed it and made a better one so they had to raise enough money so they can pay for the bridge  .
Sometimes it took hours for the swing bridge to open and close because of the tides.

Second bridge

On 14th august 1916 however by 1930 serious faults in the new bridge were reported when a large crack across the full width of the bridge at the southern end was discovered,This bridge was demolished in 1959 after the present bridge was opened.
