Melbourne’s newest iconic bridge was today officially opened and dedicated to the city’s adopted son, footballer and philanthropist Jim Stynes.
The Stynes family, players from the Melbourne Football Club and members of the Reach Foundation joined together to unveil the innovative, 120 metre bridge in the Docklands.
The Jim Stynes Bridge is the centrepiece of the $25 million redevelopment of the Yarra’s north bank. It is a much-needed connection for Melbourne’s cycling network and pedestrians, connecting the city, the Northbank waterfront, Docklands and Southbank.
