Thieves steal 10-tonne bridge
A HUGE 10-tonne steel railway bridge has been stolen from near Darwin.
Thieves used oxyacetylene equipment to cut the 20m-long by 2m-wide bridge into sections to remove it from the site.
The bridge was one of many on the old railway line between Darwin and Noonamah, 35km south of Darwin.
Gerry Wood, a local MP, said he was shocked to find the bridge missing when he went to inspect the line after a local man walking his dog noted its disappearance.
"I just couldn't believe it," Mr Wood said. "The thieves must have known what they were doing.
"Why would anyone want to steal a bridge?
"To lift something like that they must have had a crane and a big truck to take it away. The steel pylons have been perfectly cut at the base.
NT police are investigating the theft.
