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.
