Windsor Bridge (New South Wales)
Windsor Bridge is an old bridge in Windsor, New South Wales, Australia. It is built in 1874 for horse-drawn vehicles and foot traffic. It spans over the Hawkesbury River.
A new bridge is proposed to replace the old bridge due to claimed but disputed safety reasons. The old bridge is expected to be demolished after the new bridge opens.
Windsor Bridge is acknowledged as being highly significant and is individually listed on the Hawkesbury LEP and on the former Roads and Traffic Authority (Roads and Maritime Services) s170 Register.
RTA (now RMS) Statement of Significance for Windsor Bridge is below:
'It has a high level of historic, technical, aesthetic and social significance as an important historical and physical landmark in one of the State's pre-eminent historic towns, and in the wider Sydney region. It is the oldest extant crossing of the Hawkesbury River ... The River and this crossing of it has defined the life of several generations of local inhabitants ... As the suburban outskirts of Sydney widen and come closer to the still distinct and distinctive Macquarie Town, the rich history of the area and its physical remains become increasingly important to the community's sense of identity.'
