Iron Cove Bridge Sydney

Iron Cove Bridge Sydney

Iron Cove Bridge Sydney is a heritage listed bridge linking the suburbs of Drummoyne to Rozelle in New South Wales, Australia.

The original bridge was constructed of wrought iron lattice girders and opened in 1882 after four years of construction. The area was sparsely populated in the 1880s and the opening of the new bridge not only helped accessibility but also provided a new western route to Sydney via Balmain. All that remains of the original bridge are the sandstone abutments situated on both sides of the cove about 20 metres (65 ft) south of the current bridge. The abutment on the Drummoyne side is listed on the NSW Heritage Register.The original bridge was constructed of wrought iron lattice girders and opened in 1882 after four years of construction.
