Australia's Bridges: Glebe Viaducts in NSW (1)

March 2011 (-33.875 deg., 151.192 deg.) Glebe Viaducts

In 1892 Sydney's Metropolitan Railway began building a separate freight line from Central Station and Darling Harbour out to Rozelle Bay and Glebe. One of the nice features of this line are the viaducts at Wentworth Park (shown) and Jubilee Park. Each viaduct included millions of bricks and thousands of timber piles over what was originally a swamp.

More information about the Glebe Viaducts is available at the Heritage Branch Website. We'll look at the Jubilee Park Viaduct tomorrow.
