Each morning on William Street in the CBD, there are a handful of route 55 trams that display a destination of ‘Moonee Vale’.

South of Sydney there is a bridge to nowhere, built in the 1980s as part of the never-completed Maldon – Dombarton railway line.

So how did I go about seeing the bridge for myself?
