The recently completed Skytrain Bridge and Viaduct are key parts of Sydney Metro Northwest, Sydney, Australia. The Skytrain Bridge is the first curved, cable-stayed rail bridge in Australia, and it sets a global record as the longest main span for a rail bridge supported by a single plane of cable. Concrete, both precast and cast-in-place, was the material of choice for the bulk of the construction of the bridge and viaduct.
