- Opened in 1978, this Bridge is one of Melbourne's most prominent landmarks and, at 336 metres long, is Australia's second-longest bridge. Construction began in 1965. On 15 October 1971, a section of the bridge collapsed killing 35 workers in one of Australia's worst industrial accidents. There is a memorial park under the bridge at Spotswood to honour the dead. Tolling was lifted from the bridge in 1985 when the State Government deemed it had been paid for. It is now the main link between Melbourne, the historic port town of Williamstown and the satellite city of Geelong.
