When I say not the most striking I mean it does not jump out at you and scream 'bridge'. It is a very subtle well-designed bridge spanning the Swan River. It has a railway in middle, car lanes either side and either side of those...More

Few cities have a bridge as strikingly beautiful as the Narrows Bridge.The bridge is also very useful, connecting the city center to the southern suburbs. The Narrows was constructed by Clough Engineering, a local firm. Those old enough to remember the time when the Causeway...More

Nothing outstanding when it comes to bridges. Perth needs some of those mighty bridges they have in Scandivania.

While it is a great photo opportunity for the visitor, the Narrows Bridge is no more that a modern bridge which crosses a beautiful river in a very progressive city.
