About the Bridge
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 the major landowners from Wentworth Point put forward a new proposal to increase the bridge’s capacity to accommodate public transport.
Stretching more than 300m across Homebush Bay, the bridge will accommodate buses but will not be open to private vehicles. It will properly integrate Wentworth Point into Sydney’s public transport network and create a direct link to Rhodes railway station. It is also capable of carrying light rail in the future.
