Glebe Island Bridge – Give it Back! Rally

Our rally to restore the Glebe Island Bridge (held on Thursday 3 December 2020) has succeeded in harvesting some publicity and support for our cause. We estimate at least 130 people attended and many more have indicated by email their support.

Glebe Island Bridge - Give It Back!

Read the article about the Bridge and rally which appeared in City Hub.

The Glebe Society had written to Transport NSW requesting the restoration of the Bridge and for it to made into a pedestrian cycleway. Shortly after the rally we received a response from Transport for NSW. Although it provides no commitment to restoring the Glebe Island Bridge it indicates that it is being investigated as part of a walking and cycling link.

Great to have had so much support for our cause.
