The Barham Koondrook Bridge Restoration Project

A presentation by Transport for NSW who in partnership with VicRoads, carried out the restoration of the Barham Koondrook Bridge over the Murray River. The 1904 bridge is one of the oldest operational lift span bridges across the Murray River.

As well as learning about the restoration process and works this will showcase a fantastic example of heritage engineering, where this historic old bridge is given a future by restoring, strengthening and refurbishing it and also getting a good outcome for the community. A key objective was that the bridge meets the needs of the community into the future. The project effort that went into making sure both the design and the construction – as closely as possible – replicated the original designs will be overviewed.
