Metro rail services are one step closer for the landmark Sydney Metro bridge following the completion of the deck over Windsor Road at Rouse Hill.

Inspired by Sydney’s Anzac Bridge, the 270m long bridge is the first ever cable-stayed railway bridge on a curve built in Australia.

The deck is made of 88 massive concrete segments each weighing between 70 and 140 tonnes.

The delicate engineering operation to put them in place occurred seven metres above ground and mainly at night, resulting in minimal disruption to local traffic.

More than 4,600 people have worked on the Skytrain project so far.

Over coming months, twin 45m bridge towers and steel cables will be installed.
