A bridge across Homebush Bay, linking Rhodes and Wentworth Point, was first identified in government planning documents as early as 2002. This early proposal was limited to pedestrian and cycle access.

In 2010 an alliance of Wentworth Point landowners made up of Billbergia Group, Sekisui House, Homebush Bay Holding’s and Homebush Bay Properties, submitted a proposal to increase the bridge’s capacity to accommodate public transport.

After almost two years of construction and at no cost to government, the bridge has now been completed and handed to RMS for use by public transport, cyclists and pedestrians.

Delivery of this project marks a significant investment by the landowner’s alliance and demonstrates the signifcant pubic benefits that can be achieved through collaboration between government and the private sector to deliver critical public infrastructure to support urban renewal.

Bennelong Bridge connects two of Sydney’s fastest growing suburbs at Wentworth Point and Rhodes. It creates a direct link between Rhodes Railway Station and the recently upgraded Sydney Olympic Park Ferry Wharf. ┬áIt integrates Wentworth Point into the existing public transport network and provides a direct link from Rhodes to Sydney Olympic Park.
