The Sandridge Bridge over the Yarra River was first built in 1853, the second bridge built 1858, and the current bridge seen here built in 1888. It is a former rail bridge for the Port Melbourne and St Kilda railway lines, first rail crossing of the Yarra, converted to pedestrian use in 2006.
A Melbourne Water barge involved in waterway conservation and maintenance is carrying a load of timber that has been collected from waterways in a clean-up operation.

How clever to repurpose the old bridge. Someone(s) really thought the project through.ReplyDelete

Nice way to move the brush...on a barge. Pretty clever. The views form this footbridge are beautiful. Gorgeous sky above the skyscrapers. Lovely. genieReplyDelete
