OUR ILLUSTRATIONS.

BARRAt'K-ßTllEET BRIDGE.

A perspective view oí the proposed, new bridge st Barrack-street appears among our illustrations. This provides fo" a combination of the straight and frkew bridge, the 'portion from Welling- ton-street to about half way across For- rest-street, being straight, from which point, it is taken to the left on the skew to Beaufort -street, and to the tight fan-shaped, giving on easy ap- proach to Stii ling-street. The grade on the south side of the bridge will bo 1

in 20, and on the north side 1 in 25. The present grade on the south side be- ing 1 in 13. it will be been that the new grades will be a vast improvement on thc existing ones. This will be brought about by lowering the present railway {ines under the bridge to the necessary depth to obtain these casv approaches. The bridge will he <]6ft. wide, measured between balustrnding, and will be in tine alignment, and of the same width as Barrack-*treet. As will be seen from thc perspective, the bridge will be of nu attractive appearance, and will be an ornament to tho city. Pending the construction of thc bridge, the traffic will be carried on a temporary bridge erected a little to the east of the pre- sent bridge.
