User contributed information about Foxton Swing Bridge No 4
Although electrically interlocked this bridge has to operated manually and is very difficult to move. As it is necessary to stop traffic in order to open the bridge it is suggested that the person providing the effort is reasonably strong - otherwise there is a risk of upsetting waiting motorists who would rather moan than help.
