A Melbourne-based civil engineer is warning that Australia could have a bridge collapse similar to this week's US disaster, unless more money is devoted to monitoring ageing bridge structures.
Associate Professor at the University of Melbourne, Priyan Mendis, says there are a number of vulnerable bridges across Australia, but not enough engineers to assess their safety.

I have heard the West Gate Bridge in Melbourne:
Im no civil engineer but I can honestly say that each time I drive over that bridge, I pray to god (even thou Im not that religious) that the bridge holds up till I get across.
Luckily I use the public transport in Melbourne But yes, the West Gate is huge, and if it has problems, well geez..check it out damnit!
