This beautiful arch is being salvaged and rebuilt as part of the development of the heart of the city. Underneath the scaffolding it is possible to see the original archway.

Repairs on this bridge and monument are still ongoing. Unfortunately, that means that the entire area is fenced off and it's impossible to even take a look at the bridge. All you can see is the gate and scaffolding surrounding it.

Please note that the Bridge of Remembrance is currently off limits to the public and is to undergo structural alterations to secure its stability in the event of another earthquake. The explanatory boards about the engineering works that will be undertaken may be of interst to those with an engineering bent.
