Many of the bridges are engineering works of art that have stood the test of time through sunshine and storm – some haven’t like the John Ross Bridge that was swept away in the 1987 Natal floods, only to be rebuilt. My favourites are the iron rail bridge over the Tugela River and the Umhlatuzi Rail Bridge at Felixton Sugar Mill.
