Opened in 1964, Tasman Bridge is one of the world’s earliest box-girder cantilever bridges, most famous for the fact that it collapsed one night in 1975. The rebuilt bridge is now the main road link between Hobart's eastern and western shores. Walk over the bridge for a sensational view of the blue Derwent River.

  • It’s a bridge… spans the Derwent River from West to East and back again. The lane set up is unusual in that there are five lanes generally 3 for east bound traffic and two for those heading west. To accommodate the traffic flow of workers living on the eastern shore, as they travel into the city, the middle lane is changed to west bound just for the morning rush. The foot paths on each side a barely wide enough to ride a bike and have little to protect pedestrians and riders from the very strong winds and heavy rain that happens from time to time… it’s a bridge…
  • Five lane bridge with middle lane changed direction for morning and afternoon peaks. Bridge is closed to traffic when boats pass under because of lingering fears of a repeat of 1975 bridge collapse when bulk carrier crashed into pylons.
