The North West Rail Link’s landmark cable stayed bridge over Windsor Road at Rouse Hill has been approved.
The bridge, similar in look to Sydney’s iconic Anzac Bridge, has a total length of about 270 metres and two towers up to 45 metres tall, with cables that support the bridge deck.
The bridge solution was a result of community feedback and means there will be less impact on motorists using Windsor Road while the North West Rail Link is being built.
Under the previous plan, there would have been significant traffic delays and diversions for an extended period as a viaduct was built above Windsor Road to carry the North West Rail Link’s trains.
The bridge also means any future upgrade of the Windsor and Schofields Roads intersection will not be impacted by the North West Rail Link.
