This Webb bridge look really great at night time, and look really good at the bright sunny day. And it has so many good photos of this bridge from internet. So I chose the dull rainy day for my shot. Something different for you !!!
Webb Bridge or Web Bridge? You'll find both names applied to the walkway/cycleway across the Yarra River from the southside housing developments to the northside entertainment, shopping and dining venues at the Melbourne Docklands.
It's an interesting, unique-looking bridge which is part of a Melbourne public art project. Webb Bridge (or Web Bridge) was actually designed to represent a Koori eel trap. The bridge reuses the remaining sections of the disused Webb Rail Bridge.
The design received first prize in a limited design competition. The brief called for the re-use of the remaining sections of the Webb Dock Rail Bridge, in order to link the Docklands on the north side to the new residential developments on the south side.
But because the framework of the bridge does look like a mesh or web, the name Web Bridge may become the more common appellation.
The bridge comprises two distinct sections: the 145m long existing structure and a new curved 80m long ramped link.
Crossing Webb Bridge from the Yarra River southside area known as Yarra's Edge brings you to Docklands Park on the north side and thence to Victoria Harbour Promenade, Harbour Esplanade with Etihad Stadium on the right, and on to NewQuay and Waterfront City on the north side of Victoria Harbour.
As an object, it appears as a delineated structure, a sensuous volume, light and linear. Space is seen as atmospheric, dynamic and transitional.’
