Arrowe Park Bridge by First Benoni Rovers

The Rover Crew of 1st Benoni Sea Scouts, the Puddle Pirates, built this bridge/gateway for the East Rand District BP Sunday Parade at Arrowe Park. It is modelled after the chapel at Arrowe Park, which is also the emblem of the East Rand District.
The Rovers spent one day building the project, which is built over and around an existing steel bridge. The gateway is supported by a series of guylines onto the bridge deck- not quite the cable stayed bridge I was talking about two weeks ago but very similar in appearance.
Congratulatiosn to the Puddle Pirates on building this gateway, the chapel at Arrowe Park is shown in the photograph below for comparison.
