Herbie is a worker at the site of the Glen Eden railway overbridge, shown yesterday. He told me that he was part of the team erecting the bridge nearly four years ago. He was very proud of that, and explained that when the bridge was handed over there was only the slightest of complaints: one fastener at the bottom step had to be tightened.

When this job (of demolishing the old ramp, and constructing new steps) is completed, he will look for work in the South Island, where the Christchurch quakes have created job opportunities.
