Transport for NSW has installed the biggest new bridge on the Parramatta Light Rail project across James Ruse Drive in Rosehill. 

Weighing 1425-tonnes, 64-metres long and 16-metres high, the bronze-coloured steel arch structure was installed during a meticulous overnight engineering operation by four self-propelled modular transporters.

The bridge has become the state’s second longest steel arch bridge span, and will provide customers access to the new Tramway Avenue light rail stop on the western side of James Ruse Drive, and connect to the five-kilometre walking and bike-riding path along the Camellia to Carlingford corridor.

Thank you for your submissions. The submission period is now closed.
