Railway bridge gives spectacular view
May 2020
The Maribyrnong Viaduct Bridge began constructiton in 1927. When it was completed in 1929, it was the largest trestle bridge in Australia. The bridge, which is Heritage listed, is 55 metres (180 feet) high, making it the second tallest bridge in the State of Victoria, after the Westgate Bridge. It's just under 400 metres long (1260 feet), which is why locals call it the Quarter Mile Bridge. It's a grand sight, unfortunately it's mainly used for hauling freight these day, though if you are taking the passenger train from Melbourne to Sydney you will get a spectacular view.

Going back in time

Built in 1927-29, it is a spectacular steel construction bridge. I used to go dirt bike riding 25 years ago underneath it along the Maribyrnong River, and now returning and climbing over it was something else

Fantastic old bridge
Mar 2018 • Solo
Fantastic old bridge that has stood the test of time from when I was a child riding over to watch the trains travel over it. Great location to take photos of steam trains. Can be accessed from the river trail.

High above the water

The Trestle Bridge, the Quarter Miler, Big Railway Bridge call it what you like, but look out for it when going along the Western Ring road as you cross the Teddy Whitton Bridge.

But one fascinating fact, not so well known, is that the height from the Maribyrnong River to the railway line is higher than from Sydney Harbour to the road of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Quarter-mile bridge survives the ages
Sep 2017 • Solo
The Maribyrong Viaduct Bridge, also known locally as the Quarter-mile Bridge (it's 400 yards long) is almost 100 years old and still carrying railway traffic. It's quite a sight, you don't often see long trestle bridges these days. It's still one of Victoria's highest bridges. We may not see its like again.
