Tarban Creek Bridge


Tarban Creek Bridge

Tarban Creek Bridge is an arch bridge that spans Tarban Creek, west of central Sydney, Australia. It is located between Gladesville Bridge and Fig Tree Bridge, being immediately to the north of Gladesville Bridge. The bridge carries Burns Bay Road and a footpath and connects the suburb of Hunters Hill to Huntleys Point.Gregory's Street Directory, 59th Edition 1995, Map 313]

Opened in December 1965, Tarban Creek Bridge formed a "missing link" between the existing Gladesville and Fig Tree Bridges. Traffic between the old Fig Tree and Gladesville Bridges previously had to negotiate the streets of Hunters Hill to cross the creek further upstream. The three new bridges were built to carry a North Western Expressway which never came to fruition."

In 2006, Tarban Creek Bridge formed part of the Medibank Private Seven Bridges Walk, a free community event meant to promote walking as a way of staying fit and active, and consisted of a walk circuit that crossed seven of Sydney's bridges, including the Sydney Harbour, Anzac and Gladesville Bridges.
