ANZAC Bridge - Sydney

The bridge over Victoria Rd Rozelle at Lilyfield Road also closed on March 8 and has been removed. Eventually it will be replaced by an underpass.
Until then cyclists from Lilyfield Rd must travel along Gordon St and cross Victoria Road at the traffic lights at the top of Gordon St. This is not regarded as a safe alternative.

Walking and Cycling on ANZAC Bridge

The northern side of the ANZAC bridge has a shared pedestrian walk way and cycle way. This way provides excellent views up the harbour from the old Glebe Island bridge to the Sydney Harbour bridge. The Australian digger statue, the New Zealand soldier statue and their commemorative plaques can be viewed close up.

Looking over towards the Sydney harbour bridge you can see the old Glebe Island bridge It is permanently open although closed for sporting events such as the Sydney Marathon which now uses the old bridge instead of ANZAC Bridge. (2009)
It is now difficult to take pictures like this owing to the small mesh size of the safety fence. Perhaps some well placed camera "peep holes" should be provided.

The western side of the main deck is home to the two commemorative soldier statues. On the northern, walkway, side is the Australian Digger with the New Zealand soldier across the road.

A walk way next to the Australian Digger takes you around under the bridge to the New Zealand Soldier.
The structure on the underside of the bridge is well worth a look.
