The Sea Cliff Bridge, NSW – Jess (@adventures_ofjess)

Collaboration with STRUTHer Jess 

 

The 665 metre long Sea Cliff Bridge is a highlight along the Grand Pacific Drive - A drive which takes in 140 kilometres worth of coastal scenery from the Royal National Park, Loftus down to Nowra.

 

The bridge has become an icon to the people of Wollongong and the world, once again welcoming tourists annually to this picturesque coastal road.

 

 

Interesting Fun Facts:

 

  • In 2003, a large embankment slip on Lawrence Hargrave Drive on the New South Wales coast between Sydney and Wollongong resulted in a complete road closure.
  • Opened in December 2005, the Sea Cliff Bridge offers visitors the chance to get out of the car and stretch their legs.
  • The road had been susceptible to rock falls, slips, mud and rock slide in the past, due to high rainfall, erosion and other consequences of the coastal environment.
  • It is also a great viewing platform for migrating whales heading north/south during migrating season.
  • In 2014, around 150 love locks were removed from the bridge.
  • The breathtaking Sea Cliff Bridge was part of the route for the MS Sydney Gong Ride in 2017.
  • The Lawrence Hargrave Drive Project, which includes the iconic Sea Cliff Bridge, has been crowned the Association of Consulting Engineerings Australias Project of the Year.
