Lennox’s Lansdowne Bridge.

From Engineering Heritage New South Wales


This bridge over Prospect Creek, Lansvale was built by convict labour during 1834-35 under the direction of David Lennox, Superintendent of Bridges.

Spanning 33.5m, the sandstone elliptical arch is the largest surviving masonry bridge in Australia and typifies Lennox’s high standard for permanent bridge construction in New South Wales and the Port Phillip district.

Size, appearance and durability make this bridge an outstanding example of colonial engineering heritage.
