Jim Stynes Bridge nearing completion

Stage 3 of the Northbank project in Melbourne is expected to be completed for the end of April 2014.

Stage 3 features the key pedestrian and cyclist link underneath the Charles Grimes Bridge along the northern bank of the Yarra River. The bridge is named and designed in honour of the late Melbourne Football Club champion, Reach Foundation co-founder and Victorian of the Year (twice) – one of Ireland’s great exports to Australia.

The bridge will significantly enhance the quality of the public realm and improve access between the CBD and Docklands. It will feature interactive, elements along its length celebrating different aspects of Jim’s life. The bridge also features an innovative design making it appear as though it is hovering above the water.

The project is the result of a partnership between the Victoria Government and the City of Melbourne.
