- former Railway
This former railway bridge spans the Georges River and connects the southern suburbs of Como (to the south) and Oatley (to the north) on either side of the river.
The old bridge is significant as the longest single-track lattice girder bridge in NSW, and is a rare example of its type.

- Historic bridge with excellent sealed surface
- The Como bridge can be part of a larger cycle tour in the southern suburbs of Sydney
A sealed 1.5 km walking and cycle path begins at the end of Myra Place, about 1 km from Oatley Railway station and travels south along the old railway corridor, crossing the bridge and finishing in Cremona Rd Como.
At the Como end, the path continues through Como Reserve to the historic Como Hotel and adjacent streets.

On the Trail
We acknowledge the Tharawal people, the traditional custodians of the land and waterways on which the rail trail is built.
Rail Trail development
A well-maintained black-top carriageway has been installed on the old bridge, providing an excellent walking and cycling route for recreational use.
The steel truss bridge was opened in 1885 and once carried a single track on the main line from Sydney to Port Kembla.
It closed in 1972 and was replaced by an adjacent new double track bridge.
