The concrete bridge was constructed in 1923 by unemployed returned servicemen, to commemorate those who were killed in action during World War One.

It was safely used as a refuge by women and children during the disastrous bushfires of 1939. The roadway over the bridge is now disused following construction of a new bypass road and bridge in 1973.
