Westlake River

This view is East where the Westlake River crosses the Main Road at Lakeside. The bridge is often called Thirteen Mile Bridge. Taking its name from the '13 mile stone marker', this is the distance from the Town House in central Cape Town. The stone is about 100meters North of the bridge.

The inscription reads '13 (in Roman numerals)  miles from the Town House'.

This is the other side of '13 mile bridge' as the Westlake River enters the Westlake Wetlands looking East.
