Built in two complementary sections forty years apart (1863 and 1903), Kings Bridge in Launceston, Tasmania, is a very elegant and gracefully arched, open girder steel bridge which carries Bridge Road/Trevallyn Road across the Tamar River. Built to carry main road traffic north from Launceston to the town on the coasts of Bass Strait, the bridge is now protected from heavy West Tamar traffic by the newer adjoining Paterson Bridge, which was brought into service in the 1960s. Kings Bridge is now reserved for local traffic only.
Part of the bridge’s appeal is that it is the perfect terminating element to the renowned Cataract Gorge which joins the South Esk River (via Trevallyn Dam) to the Tamar River.
