Bridging the barrier

The Nepean-Hawkesbury River system virtually encloses Sydney and its Cumberland Plain thereby acting as a serious impediment to land communication between much of New South Wales and its capital city. All flood-free durable crossings for road and rail have, therefore, involved major bridgeworks. The paper reviews the period 1865 to 1972 and describes the various types of structures used to bridge this barrier.
