Meadowbank, John Whitton Bridge

The John Whitton Bridge is a railway bridge that crosses the Parramatta River between the northern suburb of Meadowbank and inner west suburb of Rhodes. The original 1886 truss bridge which was originally known as Meadowbank Bridge, sits on the eastern side of the 1980 welded steel box girder bridge on concrete piers, also known as the Parramatta River Underbridge. The bridge is named after John Whitton, the Engineer-in-Charge for the New South Wales Railways from 1867. The view is from Charity Point in Meadowbank.


  1. Looks like it is a bridge that later got an extension on one side without taking into account the original design. Must be for economical reasons.

  2. What an unusual bridge. I love the design and the fact that it's still around!

  3. Very nice shot, that bridge design is unusual.

  4. Fine composition in this photo. That bridge is quite different from one side to the other.
