Colemans Bridge over Leycester Creek

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Bridges are not just functional, they can also be scenic and engineering attractions. Spare a few minutes to admire Colemans Bridge over Leycester Creek.

Colemans Bridge is of State significance. It is a rare and representative example of a Dare truss road bridge completed in 1908 and survives in an excellent condition. The integrity of its fabric and the preservation of its original design style demonstrate its design excellence and all of the defining aspects of a Dare truss bridge. It also demonstrates less common features of Dare truss bridges, including central iron piers, relatively long truss spans and the fact that it is the only two lane Dare truss in NSW and the only to have footways. It is historically significant for its association with the expansion of the NSW road system and the renowned early twentieth century engineer, Harvey Dare.
