The construction of the Gundagai Rail Bridge and viaducts is evidence of the continuing development of the district at the turn of the century, warranting the extension of the freight and passenger railway. Cost minimisation policies led to the use of timber construction methods in what became the longest timber truss bridge in Australia. The line operated from 1903 until 1983, when it was assessed as not economically viable. The Rail Bridge (including the viaducts) has a strong and special association with the Gundagai community as demonstrated by the formation of Gundagai’s Historic Bridges Inc. (22/8/1986) to protect and conserve this and the adjacent Prince Alfred Bridge. As one of only five bridges with timber Howe deck trusses and the longest, the item is an exceptional but scarce example of its type. It is an impressive example of bridge carpentry skills, which are now rare. Due to the expense of maintaining the huge structure, whether disused or not, it is in danger of deteriorating.
