One of the few double decker bridges in the world, the top deck with rail and the bottom with road traffic has just been taken out of commission. Just north of Seddon on State Highway 1. First opened to traffic in 1902, the rail portion remains now that the new road bridge is completed. The old roadway has been removed.
For those sick of travelling on SH1, the Acheron Road through the Molesworth Station is as remote as you can get in a two wheel drive car. The Molesworth is a vast tract of inland farming country and a back-country link between Seddon and Hanmer Springs. The road is generally open to the public from 28 December - 1 April, 7.00 am-7.00 pm (but may be closed at any time due to weather, fire risk or road conditions). The turnoff is on the straight north of Seddon and is well sign-posted. No fuel or shop until Hanmer Springs.
