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

The Narrows Bridge is part Kwinana Freeway crossing the Swan River. The first bridge was officially opened by Governor Charles Gairdner on 13 November 1959, and was constructed despite widespread public protest, requirements for large scale reclamation and the engineering challenges of the riverbed.

This bridge is best viewed from Kings Park. But it's not really a tourist attraction in itself. Just a busy bridge for road and rail transport. Not really worth going out of your way to see.

Narrows Bridge is a multi lane highway in and out of Perth, with a bike and walking track on either side of the road. I'm surprised it's listed as a tourist attraction - because it's not. There's nothing special or unique about this bridge, no...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.
