When Elizabeth McKeahnie of Booroomba Station cut the ribbon to officially open Tharwa Bridge in 1895 she could not have imagined that 100 years later the ceremony would be repeated. But on 27 March 1995 the current lady of Booroomba Station, Pamela Hughes, cut the ribbon and declared the bridge re-opened.

This news story was broadcast during the Ten News, Canberra bulletin, on 27 March 1995. The reporter was Grant Gilluley, and the news presenter Virginia Nicholls. In 1995 Ten Capital (now Southern Cross Ten) branded its news as Ten News to align with the Ten Network, which the station is affiliated with.
