Location of Example: 152°34'29" East, 25°19'50" South
Distinctive Characteristics:
  • Road bridges generally cross bodies of water, or low lying areas along the road network.
  • In Figure the shadows cast by the bridges are evident. The railway bridge is significantly thinner than the road bridges.
  • In Figure the Road Bridge Line appears as the darker blue/grey line in the centre of the road and the lighter blue edges, compared to the Railway Bridge Line which is all one colour.
Regional Considerations:
