Construction of CY O'Connor's Goldfields Water Scheme begun.
The second road bridge across the river was built 1896-8 just downstream of the first and called the Low Level Bridge. It was wider and stronger but much lower. It was required by the increased commercial traffic mostly as a result of gold discoveries.
The Salvation Army Citadel in William Street erected.
