The excessive rains that fell over much of Natal at the end of September 1987 resulted in damage estimated at R96 million to rural roads and bridges. Damage was caused at more than 400 places and included 28 bridge structures, 130 bridge approaches and 40 causeways. No modern bridge structures were damaged, although some of the approaches were washed away. The damaged structures were mostly between 26 and 42 years old.
