Australia's Bridges: Railway Square Underbridge at Sydney's Central Station (1)

March 2011 (-33.882 deg., 151.206 deg.) Railway Square Underbridge

At the other end of the station (across Eddy Avenue) is an old stone masonry bridge (1856). According to the Heritage Council Website"The overbridge at Railway Square .... opened the same day as the main railway in 1855 and is the oldest piece of railway infrastructure remaining in NSW and the only known feature built by the original Sydney Railway Company." 

Central Station has several levels for different modes of transportation. The Railway Square Underbridge provides trams and buses access to the station and is the oldest railway bridge in Australia that's still in use. We'll take a closer look at this bridge tomorrow.
