Information

This stone triple arched bridge constructed over the Ross Creek to the west of Kapunda township is the only known one in South Australia.

This bridge still serves as a link between outer settlements and Kapunda. This bridge still serves as a link between outer settlements and Kapunda.

The bridge is constructed of silt stone with picked sandstone dressings to the arches and capping to the roadway balustrades, revetments and abutments, and side parapet walls. The bridge appears generally in good condition, however the mortar to the lower siltstone courses is missing in places. There is also some evidence of movement of the sandstone arches to the front away from the main structure of the bridge.
