A great location to have another pedestrian crossing of the Cooks River


Unwins Bridge is the heavily trafficked bridge near Tempe Station that links Richardsons Crescent with Bayview St. The current pedestrian crossing arrangements are inconvenient and dangerous.

  • We normally drive to the other side of the river with our dogs because the crossing of the road bridges freaks them out. I’ve always loved the river bridges they have in Hurlstone Park and it would be ideal to have a new bridge between the Illawarra Road bridge and the Tempe station bridge. I know I would use it all the time.
