Railway bridge over Hobart Rd New Lambton. The railway led to the Lambton Colliery site a few hundred metres to the west of this location. Hunter Photo Bank. Newcastle Region Library.
The railway bridges over Hobart Rd and Howe St were removed in 1966. The only subtle reminders that remain, are the slight dip in Hobart Road where it passed under the bridge, and a funny little jink in Howe St where the road needed to pass perpendicular under the narrow bridge.
