About Walmer Street Bridge

The Walmer Street Bridge crosses the Yarra River and connects Kew to Richmond and Abbotsford. It plays an important role for pedestrians and the regional bicycle network.

The bridge has 3 sections:

  • The northern land bridge is a City of Boroondara asset. This section of the Walmer Street Bridge was in poor condition and needed to be replaced.
  • The river bridge is a heritage-listed Victorian Government asset.
  • The southern land bridge is a City of Yarra asset. You can find out more about the works completed by Salta Properties on the southern land bridge via the Live at Riverbank website.

In October 2023, we completed our main works to the northern land bridge section. In December 2023, Salta Properties also completed their works on the southern land bridge section. You can learn more about the project on the City of Boroondara website.
