When I was a kid we loved driving over this graceful bridge, for a millisecond we would pretend that we were driving over the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It was on the Pacific Hwy and although it is no longer used by vehicular traffic it is adjacent to a new bridge built in 1987, so luckily we pass it all the time.
Built in 1936, it was the first reinforced concrete bowstring arch bridge built in Australia. It was cast in place by the Monier Company for 5,333 pounds. Its unusual design ensured that cane barges could move freely underneath.
You can just make out the faded double yellow lines on the bridge deck. When did NSW change to white lines on its roads?
