Stop At: Bayswater WA 6053, Australia

The Bayswater Railway Bridge has its own website. Look it up. It diligently tells you how many days it has been since some poor truck driver has miscalculated the height of his vehicle and stuck himself beneath its steel trusses.
The bridge may not be long for this tour as plans are in place to replace it but for now it is offered as a “drive through” option.
Locals have suggested a speaker system be installed to play “Another one Bites the Dust” every time a vehicle impacts beneath the railway bridge. Others simply joke that “She Feeds again”….
