John Monash: Engineering enterprise prior to WW1.

Monier arch bridge, Fyansford.

Glancing view from the bank, below deck level. A wing wall, a side arch, and the central span are visible. Trees conceal the rest. The spandrels are finished in grey rough cast mortar. The abutment is marked by a pilaster, and pilasters rise above the piers. A prominent string course defines the base of the parapet wall.

East end span (60 feet) and central span (100 ft).
Because of tree growth it is impossible to show the far end span.
