The Bowen Bridge is a four-lane road bridge crossing the Derwent River in Tasmania, Australia. The Bridge lies on the river about half way between the Tasman Bridge and the Bridgewater Bridge. The Bridge links the East Derwent Highway with the Brooker Highway (as Goodwood Road) at Glenorchy some 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) from Hobart. The Bowen Bridge was built with Federal funds following the collapse of the Tasman Bridge in 1975. The bridge cost $49 million to construct and was officially opened on 23 February 1984. The Bowen Bridge was built with the intention of assisting the commuters of Hobart, should something happen to the Tasman Bridge. The bridge is named after John Bowen who settled the first European Colony in Tasmania at Risdon Cove, which later would be moved to the other side of the Derwent to form Hobart.
