West Gate Bridge Memorial: 52 years on
Posted on Oct 17, 2022
Saturday marked 52 years since the collapse of the West Gate Bridge.
Over 200 people gathered at the memorial site in Spottswood to mark the anniversary and remember those we lost on 15 October 1970.
Saturday’s memorial was opened by Uncle Ringo (pictured below) who welcomed everyone to country, shared stories, and lead a smoking ceremony.
