Southern Approach Steelwork. Spans.22.214.171.124. 31/3/37" caption on Photograph.
Steelwork for spans 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the Story Bridge. All the steelwork, approximately 12,000 tonnes, was fabricated at the Rocklea workshop of Evans, Deakin & Co. Ltd. One truss of each type of approach span, and all joints of the main bridge, were assembled at the workshop then dismantled before removal, ensuring there were no difficulties in erecting the steelwork on site.
