Great bakes888 2009-08-31 2:15

Hi Denis. We have no covered bridges here in NZ, what is the reason for covering the bridges?
Excellent photo, you have chosen your POV well and composed with excellent depth and perspective. Great colours also. Thanks for sharing.
Have a good week, Paul.

Default To bakes888: what is the reason for covering the bridges?

Hello Paul!
The reason is to protect the surface of the bridge from the ice,snow and rain. The wood is a very slippery surface. It protects it from rot also.
Thanks for your visit,
Best regards

I see now, the bridges over here are all covered in tar seal the same as the roads. Thanks for your reply.
Take care, Paul.
