Birkenhead Bridge

The Birkenhead Bridge has been providing access to Outer Harbour since 1940. The bridge opens in the middle to allow large ships to pass through. When this occured there were obviously lengthy traffic delays.

With the increasing use of the port facilities at Outer Harbour, there has been an ever increasing amount of heavy traffic through Port Adelaide. A new bridge is being built to bypass the city centre.
