Hard to read? "This bridge was constructed by the P.W. Dept. from the designs and under the supervision of the Director of Public Works, Mr. P. Le Juge de Segrais, M.I.C.E., during the governorship of Sir Cavendish Boyle, K.C.M.G."
Boyle had previously been Governor of Newfoundland, where he wrote "Ode to Newfoundland," which became that island's official and still sung (or mouthed) anthem. Le Juge de Segrais, on the other hand, was a Mauricien who studied at the famous Cooper's Hill engineering school, not far from what is now Heathrow airport. Unlike the governors he worked for, working in Mauritius was, for him, working at home.
