Transport for NSW is encouraging our community to help name the new bridge across James Ruse Drive.
Installed in June as part of Stage 1 of the Parramatta Light Rail project, the Rosehill bridge stretches across six lanes of traffic on James Ruse Drive and is the state’s second longest steel arch bridge span.
The new 1425-tonne, 64-metres long bridge accommodates the light rail and walking and bike-riding paths. It will transform how locals and visitors explore what the region has to offer, and is key to linking light rail users, pedestrians and cyclists from Carlingford to the Parramatta CBD.
A panel made up of key local stakeholders, including the City of Parramatta Council, Parramatta Chamber of Commerce, Parramatta and District Historical Society, Western Sydney University and Transport for NSW, will assess the community’s submissions in line with naming guidelines and conventions.
Submissions close 30 July 2021.
