Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

History.[edit]

Some tid bits of history that need to be fully checked before inclusion. 1. The same Standard Car loco that first crossed the bridge in 1932 was used again in the 2002 re-enactment. It had been in service for that long. 2. The similar looking Bayonne Bridge in New Jersey was completed four months earlier, and is 25 feet longer. This was likely to have been a race to have the longest steel span.14.202.189.14 (talk) 06:40, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

Another name connected with the bridge's design is that of Arthur Plunkett[edit]

I've again removed Another name connected with the bridge's design is that of Arthur Plunkett, which Arno keeps adding, from the article. At best this is an unsourced, unencyclopaedic claim. It was in the article for some time before being tagged as needing a citation in December 2010,[1] and yet there was no attempt to ever source the claim. A lot of people were involved with the design and if any are to be included in the article their involvement needs to be notable and sourced. This is not the case with Plunkett. Simply saying that someone was involved is not encyclopaedic, it's just a promotion of that person over thousands of others without any justification. According to Plunkett's article he took charge of an office in which designs and erection schemes were prepared between 1924 and 1926 and he prepared 3 preliminary designs during that time. None of this was mentioned in this article and if that was the extent of his involvement with the bridge, it does not seem significant enough to warrant inclusion in this article, especially given that his involvement. apparently ended 3 years after construction began and 6 years before completeion. --AussieLegend () 10:19, 14 November 2015 (UTC)
