It's time to replace Walmer Street Bridge!

Walmer Street Bridge located on the Yarra River is long overdue to be replaced by a crossing for the changing needs of the Abbotsford and Kew areas.

For over thirty years there have been calls for the bridges replacement.

The current situation cannot continue as the bridge is in poor condition, requires constant maintenance by Boroondara Council and Yarra Council and is not longer fit for purpose.

Over 3000 signatures were collected in 2018 for the bridges replacement in a petition presented to the Legislative Assembly of Victoria.

In August 2018 the Andrews Labor Government commissioned a $200,000 scoping study and business case for upgrading the century-old Walmer St Bridge in Richmond.

In 2020 we call upon the Victoria government to commit, fund and build a replacement for the Walmer Street Bridge.
