|Beginning of works:||19th century|
The bridge collapsed due to material failure at the point of maximum bending where two cast iron girders where joined. The connection itself was not the cause of the failure, but "honeyombing" that reduced the strength of the girder at that very point.
Currently there is no information available about persons or companies having participated in this project.
