The Woronora River Bridge (also known as Woronora Bridge) is a road bridge over the Woronora River at Woronora, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. When completed the bridge was the largest incrementally launched bridge in the Southern Hemisphere with horizontal and vertical curves.
The Woronora Bridge, was built to eliminate the steep descents and ascents for traffic between southern Sydney suburbs of Sutherland and Menai. The new high level bridge was completed in 2001 as an alternative to the old low level Woronora Bridge. There is a public walkway on the bridge located just underneath the road for bicycle and pedestrians. The path can be accessed from Menai Road on the Bangor side and Prince Edward Park Road or River Road on the Sutherland side.
The innovative design and leading-edge construction methods used during the bridge construction were recognised with the Australian Construction Achievement Award in 2002.
