Dedication

Front Inscription

This plaque marks the site of the southern approach  to the second Victoria Bridge, completed in 1897 at a cost of £125,000 to replace the bridge destroyed by floods in 1893.

When the bridge was demolished in 1969 following the completion of the present bridge, this section was retained as a memorial to the endeavour of successive generations of Brisbane`s citizens to provide swift means of cross-river transport.
