A $25m road rail bridge on the West Coast was officially opened on Friday.

The Arahura bridge replaces a 120-year old single-lane structure and forms part of State Highway 6.

Project director Walter Rushbrook says the bridge can accommodate a train, two lanes of vehicle traffic and also has a pedestrian and cycle way.
