The original four span wrought iron lattice truss bridge opened on 23 January 1881. It was the second oldest bridge out of the twelve related wrought iron lattice truss series bridges built in Australia. Each of the four lattice truss spans was 48.5 metres long which joined onto what was thought to be the longest timber viaduct in Australia.
The bridge was removed and replaced with a new concrete bridge during a four-day shut down from 30 December 2006. The wrought iron lattice railway bridge was cut away using Oxy cutters. One cut section of the bridge was donated to railway preservation group Tumbarail at Ladysmith.
