Renewal of Parramatta River underbridge at Camellia

Parramatta River Underbridge, 23.350krn on the Clyde-Carlingford Line, was originally opened on April 16, 1896. Just over I00 years later this bridge was demolished and the replacement bridge was reopened to rail traffic on June I, 1996. Construction was undertaken as one of the largest projects in the current five year bridge renewal program which has so far seen the replacement of over 100 bridges in Sydney's metropolitan area. The brief for both the previous bridge investigation and the replacement structure was provided by the Engineering Design and Investigation Group of the Railway Services Authority. Investigation of the existing bridge and detail design of the new bridge was undertaken by Connell Wagner Pty Ltd. A report into replacement options was prepared by McMillan Britton and Kell Pty Ltd. Demolition of the previous bridge and construction of the new structure was carried out by the Railway Services Authority through their MCE Group.
