John Monash: Engineering enterprise prior to WW1.

Reinforced Concrete T-girder Bridges. Brickwood St Bridge, Elwood 1906.

What remains of the bridge is a sorry sight. It has been reduced to two main girders supporting sufficient width of deck to provide a footpath. Two pairs of columns with triangular brackets support the girders over the channelised Elwood Creek. Mesh wire safety fencing is a prominent visual feature.
