Bridge over tributary of the Barwon River West Branch at Forrest - Birregurra To Forrest Railway

Just one kilometre north of the line terminus at Forrest, this small bridge spans a tributary of the Barwon River West Branch. The bridge has 7 openings, and is 45 Metres long. Unlike it's nearby companion, it has not been repaired, and the rail trail bypasses it. 

The reason for not repairing it is not known, considering the smaller bridge has been repaired, but the condition may be a clue, it would be relatively expensive to repair the damage and put a new deck and railings on it.
