The Jim Stynes Bridge

11 Jun 2012

The planned bridge at Northbank will be named the Jim Stynes Bridge. Planning Minister Matthew Guy revealed the overwhelming result of the public consultation was to recognise the lovable Irishmen.

The Jim Stynes Bridge is seen as a much-needed link between the CBD and Docklands.

It is planned to be an innovative design, with Mr Guy saying it will incorporate features that will highlight Jim Stynes’ life as a migrant, footballer, sports administrator and philanthropist.

“The new bridge will be an interactive one, with features along it recognising the different aspects of Jim’s life and his commitment to the country that he adopted and which subsequently came to adopt him,” Mr Guy said.

“Victorians were given a chance to suggest names for the bridge through the State Government and City of Melbourne seeking feedback in the Herald Sun newspaper and there was an overwhelming desire to recognise Jim Stynes in this way,” Mr Guy added.

The bridge is expected to cost $18 million and construction will begin later this year.
