Vandals deface Gundagai’s railway bridge

Gundagai’s historic railway bridge was sprayed with graffiti last week.

As Gundagai residents bid a sad farewell to the Prince Alfred Bridge, vandals have taken it upon themselves to spray graffiti over the town’s only remaining historic bridge, the heritage-listed railway bridge.

The graffiti was discovered last Thursday morning and police are interested in hearing from anyone who may have information about the vandalism.

“It is very disappointing to see damage to any of our historic structures,” said Gundagai Police Sergeant Shane Brasen.

“If anyone has any information, they should contact Gundagai Police on 6944 0499 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.”

Transport for NSW said John Holland representatives will carry out an inspection in coming days to assess any damage and ascertain the best method of repair.

“As the railway bridge is heritage listed, John Holland will also liaise with relevant stakeholders to ensure all appropriate steps are taken in any graffiti removal process,” a spokesperson said.
