After a short walk we reached Bridge # 548c, which is the Mandeville Bridge. This is strictly pedestrians only, as it is a very old wooden construction.

It was constructed in 1874 to allow school children to walk to the nearby Kaiapoi School.

The Mandeville footbridge in the background was constructed in 1874 to allow school children to walk to the nearby Kaiapoi School. At that time it reached as far as Charles Street (on the other side of the river) to bridge the swamp on the riverbank. This area has now become a park.
