John Monash: Engineering enterprise prior to WW1

Reinforced Concrete T-girder Bridges
Darraweit Guim Bridge 1914.

There are three 12.2m spans and two tall piers. Each pier has three columns. The central column is vertical, but the others splay out towards the base to give greater lateral stability. The space between the columns is filled by reinforced concrete wall. There are light metal handrails.
