Abstract

For 110 years, the Murray River at Echuca was crossed by a combined road and rail bridge of great historic significance. When V/Line decided to build a new rail bridge, a series of studies was undertaken to produce an optimum solution to the engineering, environmental and social needs. The result was that the old bridge has been retained for road traffic, a striking new rail bridge has been built, and the historic attributes of the site have been preserved.
