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.

  1. What a wonderful old bridge, Nick! Great captures! Hope you've had a great weekend and have a wonderful week ahead!

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

  3. Can't even remember when last I crossed a bridge. Wonderful pictures ! Please have a good new week ahead.

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

  5. What a nice looking bridge! Nice way to haul the debris too! Hope you have a great week!
