Containership Passing Under Westgate Bridge Near Melbourne


In this drone video by Steffshots, you'll get a bird's eye view of a giant containership heading under the Westgate Bridge in Melbourne, Australia.  Opened in 1978, the cable-stayed bridge spans the Yarra River and connects the Melbourne CBD with the city's western suburbs.  The bridge has a total length of about 2.6k meters or around 8.5k ft..  Its clearance of 58 meters (190 ft.) permits the passage of the largest containerships in and out of Australia's busiest seaport.  It's one of the busiest stretches of road in Australia.
