SHE no longer spans the Murrumbidgee – but the once-mighty Hampden Bridge lives on.
The relic of the city skyline has been repurposed as a table at the Trail Street Coffee Shop.
It’s taken nearly nine months for the 120-year-old timber to resurface after the bridge was spectacularly demolished last year.
Trail Street manager Lachlan Robinson said the table was milled, dressed, sanded, filled with resin and polished ahead of its reveal.
Mr Robinson said it took more than 30 hours’ manual labour to bring it up to scratch.
Council reslolved to demolish the bridge in 2012, citing excessive maintenance costs as the reason for its removal.
The pylons were retained and remain in place where the bridge once stood.
