Bridge over flood plain, Britannia Sidings, East of Yarra Junction. Lilydale to Warburton Railway

 This bridge differs from others I looked at on this line in that the piers are constructed of brick rather than poured concrete. Otherwise, it is an unremarkable bridge consisting of 9 brick piers with steel beams and the usual wooden deck used on rail trails. It is approximately 48 Metres long.

View of North side of the bridge, looking East towards Warburton.

An interesting little historical brief, laminated and attached to a post on the approach to the bridge. It gives a little historical background to Britannia Sidings and the private railway that fed goods to the main line.
