Brooklyn Bridge

Heritage Brooklyn Bluestone Bridge Rejuvination Project

Friends of Lower Kororoit Creek is excited to have received an $86k West Gate Neighbourhood Fund Grant to rejuvenate and light the 1880’s heritage-listed unique blue stone bridge that served for many years as the crossing over the Kororoit Creek on the main road link to Geelong. The funding will help us to clean up the graffiti on this wonderful old bridge and solar light the bridge abutments and the shared trail as it passes over it. New signage will welcome visitors to Hobsons Bay and the wonderful Kororoit Creek environmental corridor and the community will get a look at latest edition of Geoffrey Ricardo’s ‘Sprits of Time’ artwork.
