Summary

The former Webb Dock Railway Bridge has been converted for use by pedestrians and cyclists. The bridge runs parallel with the Charles Grimes road bridge and provides a connection over the Yarra between Docklands and South Bank. Something to combine with all the other paths and attractions in the area. The line was only open from 1986 to 1996 and some of the line remains in place up at the Lorimer St. end. The bridge shape was changed considerably of course to fit in with the area, especially the aboriginal “fishing net” shape on the Yarra’s Edge side, when it was opened in 2003.
