ANZAC Bridge maintenance
The ANZAC Bridge is a Sydney icon and an important part of the road network. It is now fifteen years since the ANZAC Bridge opened to traffic and Roads and Maritime Services is undertaking a maintenance program to ensure its effective operation into the future.
The maintenance project will improve the bridge's stay cables, improve maintenance access to hard to reach parts of the bridge, improve the safety fencing and assist views from the bridge.

New fence installation - April 2013
In April the ANZAC Bridge maintenance project team will start installing new permanent fences on both sides of the ANZAC Bridge.
The new fences will be 3 metres high and made from steel mesh. The new fences have been designed to preserve views from the bridge and to improve public safety.
What does the work involve?
The existing pedestrian fence on the city-bound side of the bridge (next to the shared path) will be removed and replaced with the new 3 metre high fence. A new 3 metre high fence will also be installed on the Rozelle-bound side of the bridge. At present there is no fence on this side of the bridge.
The work involves:
- Installing a temporary fence along the shared pathway
- Removing the existing pedestrian fence on the northern side of the bridge
- Installing new fences on both sides of the bridge
Work to install the temporary fence and new permanent fences started in February and is scheduled for completion by July 2013. The work will be undertaken during the day and at night.
Changes to the shared path:
A new temporary fence will be installed beside the existing pedestrian fence so that workers can install the new fence safely. The temporary fence will be installed over part of the shared path, reducing the width of the path by approximately 65cm. Pedestrians and cyclists should take extra care on the path while the work is undertaken.
This work will involve some lane closures on the bridge. The lane closures will be undertaken at night when traffic volumes on the bridge are lower.
