a new BRIDGE TO CONNECT GROWING COMMUNITIES
The proposed 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 will connect the emerging communities of Rhodes and Wentworth Point to public transport, parklands, shopping, entertainment and other facilities and help reduce private car use. The bridge design will create a visual landmark and will also have the potential to carry service infrastructure.
The Homebush Bay Bridge will provide a significant step in establishing a cycle and walking link on the southern foreshore of Parramatta River, and reduce the distance to travel between the Sydney Olympic Park ferry wharf and Rhodes railway station from about 8km to less than 2km.
