West Gate Bridge Disaster

44 years ago on Wednesday, 35 workers tragically died when the West Gate Bridge collapsed.

Just before lunch, the bridge under construction suddenly groaned. An eerie pinging noise filled the air. A storm of rust flakes peeled off weathered steel. The girders started to turn blue.

The bridge fell away beneath their feet. Minutes later, 35 workers were dead.

When: Wednesday 15th October 1970
