The $25 million refurbishment of the Murray River bridge linking Barham and Koondrook took a major step forward this week.

OUT with the old and in with the new.

The $25 million refurbishment of the Murray River bridge linking Barham and Koondrook took a major step forward this week when the massive bridge truss on the Victorian side was removed and replaced.

Traffic was diverted in Koondrook while the 114-year-old structure was moved away on a over-dimensional transport.

The process was repeated in reverse the following day when a new truss, complete with a pedestrian path on one side, was transported to the bridge.

The truss on the Barham side will also be replaced.
