Railway Bridge Construction in Malaya (Coninued)

V.-THREE BRIDGES OF SPECIAL INTEREST. (1) The Lebir Bridge This bridge consists of two 250 ft. spans over permanently running water, and three 100 ft. spans over normally dry ground, 50 ft. above low water level in the river, which has a catchment area of approximately 1,000 square miles, and is the largest of the tributaries entering the main Kelantan River. The construction of the bridge was under the charge of the Section Engineer, Manek Urai, in addition to his many other duties, in the persons successively of Mr. H. S. Haskins, Assoc.M.Inst.C.E., who did the setting-out and began the sinking of all the wells during 1924 (thereafter becoming Acting Divisional Engineer, Kelantan North); the author, who completed the bridge to the original plans and opened it to construction traffic, during 1925; and Mr. Lyndon V. Brady, Jun.I.E.Aust., who was responsible for the work of reconstruction in 1927, after the great flood of which the effects will be described. John Edwin Holmstrom
