CROSSOVER // AN HISTORIC bridge over the former Noojee rail line may soon be restored.

Above: The Noojee bridge 1934. The Crossover bridge is not a rail bridge, but is an example of many trestle bridges along the former Noojee rail line.

First published in the 28 August 2015 edition of the Warragul & Baw Baw Citizen.

Councillors approved a plan to fund the application for a heritage permit on behalf of the Rokeby and Crossover Friends Group Inc for the Crossover Trestle Bridge at their 26 August meeting.

The bridge is the last remaining original bridge of the 23 built for rail and road traffic along the line. Other surviving bridges, including the one near Noojee, are not original, having been rebuilt after bushfires.

  1. Geoff Anderson says:

    This bridge has engineering significance as it has the usual lateral decking, but it is covered by diagonal timber sheeting planks. This is most unusual but has the benefit of no two wheels of a vehicle hitting a joint in the deck at any one time.
