A couple of weeks ago, I went down to meet my Mum in Wollongong for lunch. On the way back I returned via NSW’s newest tourist attraction: the Sea Cliff Bridge.
See more pictures of the Sea Cliff Bridge.
While not exactly as exciting as the big merino, this is certainly an awesome location for a bridge. Driving out over the ocean was a new experience for me, as I hope it would be for any of you.
The bridge isn’t really that long – 665 metres – and it passes quickly. There are places to stop and view, though. I suggest taking a passenger with you – one can focus on driving and the other gawk out the window.
The project to repair the road cost $49 million. That seems a lot, but the old road (seen beneath the bridge in the photos) was the highest slope risk section of road in NSW with over 50 rock falls reported between 1996 and 2003.
Do yourselves a favour and check this fabulous, scenic bridge out. The tourists certainly are.
