Bolte Bridge History, Named After, Towers & Map, Melbourne
The Bolte Bridge features a twin cantilever structure that is anchored on the banks of the scenic Yarra River and the famous Victoria Harbour.
The Bolte Bridge was built to connect west of Melbourne’s central business district to the Docklands precinct. In addition, the bridge also connects the toll roads of the CityLink system (including Tullamarine Freeway), West Gate Freeway and the Domain and Burnley tunnels. Overall, the Bolte Bridge is a significant part of Melbourne’s road transport system.
Operated and maintained by CityLink, the Bolte Bridge draws tourists to witness its architectural design. You can take the Westgate freeway to reach this iconic landmark; although cycling and pedestrian access are strictly prohibited for safety reasons. However, there are a number of nearby restaurants, cruises and spots where you can enjoy the view of the bridge during the day and even during at night when the bridge is lit up in all its glory.
