Thanks for the info Al. I always thought the old Burma Bridge was located at the site of the new connector. I'm going to look for those old boards to locate the site. My neighbour (aged 84) walked the Burma years ago. She recalls it consisted of a single cable to walk on, 2 cables above for hand holding and cables along the way that looped from one hand cable down to the foot cable and back up to the other hand cable, for stability I guess.
I have an old map from 1978 which shows the position of the Burma. Am curious about the Burke falls, located above the upper falls and below the old burma bridge site on the map. Are you familiar with these falls?
