Princes Bridge Heritage Restoration
City of Melbourne
Princes Bridge, an iconic landmark of Melbourne, holds a significant place in the city’s history. Originally constructed in 1888, this elegant structure spans the Yarra River, connecting the city’s central business district with the bustling Southbank precinct. The bridge was designed by renowned architect John Grainger and built at a cost of £57,000, an astronomical sum at that time. Throughout the years, it has witnessed countless events, and continues to captivate visitors from around the world.
We are excited to announce the upcoming restoration project that will breathe new life into this beloved heritage site. Over the next 3 years, our aim is to preserve the historical integrity of Princes Bridge while enhancing its beauty and structural integrity for generations to come.
We invite you to follow the journey of this monumental restoration project as we restore Princes Bridge to its former grandeur. Stay tuned for updates on the progress and be a part of preserving our treasured heritage for future generations to cherish.
