We’ll keep you updated on the rise of Alfred the great (bridge), at this stage it is now anticipated to be complete in August of this year*.

About Alfred Street Bridge
The Alfred Street Bridge is a new pedestrian and cyclist bridge over the Parramatta River between James Ruse Drive and the Gasworks Bridge. At 4.5 meters wide and almost 200m long, it will be the first true diagonal arch bridge in Australia.
Co-funded by City of Parramatta and the NSW Government, this $19 million project is part of the revitalisation of the River, and is a key element within a network of planned pedestrian and cyclist improvements to get the community out on their wheels or their legs!
The project will deliver an accessible connection over the river directly to the Parramatta Light Rail stop on the southern side, along with services, schools and recreational opportunities. With the new bridge, even more of the community can now enjoy and experience over 20km of off-road paths along the Parramatta River.
