The 112-year-old swing bridge to Glebe Island has been permanently in the open position for the past 10 years. Should the bridge be reopened? What should it be used for? Have your say in our poll.
I’ve been working hard with the community to protect the bridge from being demolished for several years, pushing the Government not only to preserve the bridge but to reopen it for foot and bicycle traffic, with the opportunity to develop light rail.
Using the Glebe Island Bridge as a thoroughfare once again would be an important step in improving the transport connectivity of our area and helping people get where they need to go easily and quickly.
We understand that the Government is now actively developing options for the use of the bridge so we are stepping up our campaign.
I've written to the Minister for Transport on this important matter and will update you shortly. I’ll be calling on you for your support this year to help us drive a strong campaign to restore the Glebe Island Bridge to full use once again.
What do you think? Should the bridge be reopened? What should it be used for? Have your say in our poll.
