a new BRIDGE TO CONNECT GROWING COMMUNITIES
The Homebush Bay Bridge will connect, transport and sustain two of Sydney's newest communities. It will create a new landmark in Sydney's inner west and set a new benchmark in environmentally sustainable transport and service infrastructure in Sydney.
Reaching some 300 metres across Homebush Bay, the bridge is designed for pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. It will connect the growing communities of Rhodes and Wentworth Point to parklands, shopping, entertainment and other facilities and will help reduce private car use. The bridge will also have the capacity to carry service infrastructure but will not be open to private vehicles.
The Homebush Bay Bridge will provide a significant step in establishing a cycle and pedestrian link on the southern foreshore of Parramatta River, and reduce the distance to travel between Wentworth Point and Rhodes railway station from about 8km to
less than 1km.
The Homebush Bay Bridge has moved a step closer with contractors VSL/Brady Marine JV appointed in May 2014 to undertake final design and construction. The project has been fully funded upfront by the Billbergia Group and the Wentworth Point Landowners. Preliminary work has already commenced, with the main construction work in Homebush Bay scheduled to start in late 2014. The Bridge will open in early in 2016 and will be handed to the NSW government on completion.
