Cooreei Bridge over Williams River

The Cooreei Bridge over the Williams River at Dungog is listed under the NSW Heritage Act.

Built in 1906, the Cooreei Bridge is an example of the Dare design. According to the pamphlet "Historic Bridges of the Hunter Valley" Harvey Dare re-worked Allan's design (e.g. the bridge over the Paterson River at Vacy) to produce a composite truss without pins. The result stronger and maintenance was easier.

The bridge is listed under ... transport activities associated with the moving of people and goods from one place to another, and systems for the provision of such movements.
