Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today announced that the new Nepean River Bridge will hold its grand opening on Sunday, 28 October.
Following the opening ceremony, the new 257 metre long dual pedestrian/cycle bridge will be available for the public to use for the first time.
“The new bridge will provide a safe crossing for pedestrians and cyclists over the Nepean River so that they no longer have to walk or ride on the narrow footpath on Victoria Bridge,” said Stuart Ayres
“For the first time since 1867, people will be able to look down and see the Nepean River as they walk or ride from Penrith to Emu Plains and back.”
Further details will be announced in coming weeks and will be available at: https://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/projects/sydney-west/nepean-river-bridge/index.html
