Australia's Bridges: Camellia Railway Bridge across the Parramatta River in NSW

March 2011 (-33.815 deg., 151.026 deg.) Camellia Railway Bridge

The Camellia Railway Bridge has steel legs that wrap around concrete columns to support the long center span of this through truss structure. It's also a very modern truss, having been completed in 1995 making it the newest of the Parramatta River crossings. However, according to the Heritage Council the masonry abutments are unaltered from a 19th century bridge and provide details on early bridge construction in Australia.
