Long Description:
As built in 1866, the viaduct consisted of six brick piers and two abutments joined by seven spans varying in length from 29ft to 39ft. Over subsequent years various steps were taken to strengthen the construction, but this was not adequate for Webbs "large steam" locomotives and in 1926 the piers and abutments were repaired and five 11.9m and two 8.8m spans replaced the original spans. This impressive bridge towers 23m above the creek.
Bridge Type: Tresle

Bridge Usage: Railroad

Moving Bridge: This bridge is static (has no moving pieces)
