Concept Plan

Check out the Concept Plan below and in the resources section to learn more about the proposed Bridge.

The Alfred Street Bridge was first proposed amongst a number of transport improvements to support higher densities along the Parramatta River between Gasworks Bridge and James Ruse Drive.

The design was launched by Council in 2017, and recently the balance of funding was secured for construction.

Construction of the Alfred Street Bridge is scheduled throughout 2022, and requires permanently closing Alfred Street, north of River Road West, in Rosehill (the area outlined in red below) to vehicular traffic.

The completed bridge will enable safe and accessible walking and cycling access to the busiest recreational corridor in the area, and unlock new catchments for the Parramatta Light Rail and the businesses on the southern bank of the river.

Notification of road closure

Public exhibition closed at 10:00am on Thursday 6 May 2021.

Any concerns and comments regarding the proposal will be considered and amendments (if required) made to the design as appropriate. The outcomes of consultation and a recommendation were reported to the Parramatta Traffic Committee in May 2021 and a subsequent Council Meeting.
