One Bridge, Community event: RUN – WALK – WHEEL !

0 days 0 hours 0 minutes 0 seconds

The inaugural BBBRun 2017 was a great success, with lots of positive feedback from both the participants and stakeholders.

The BBBRun made a bit of a splash, our event was picked up by Channel Nine News and also the Inner West courier.

Wentworth Point and Rhodes are waterfront suburbs, popular due to their proximity to public transport, water, parks and retail. The two picturesque suburbs are close-knit communities that collaborate on many events throughout the year and now, thanks to the introduction of the newly constructed Bennelong Bridge, this has become effortless.

The new pedestrian, cycling and public transport bridge was brought to the community by the ecologically sustainable developer, Billbergia.

Billbergia has been creating social infrastructure in Wentworth Point and Rhodes for more than ten years, which has resulted in the creation of a vibrant community filled with parks, bridges, restaurants and retail.

There is no specific event parking, however there is on street parking around Rhodes or even Wenworth Point. People last year had no problems finding a park close by.

If for some reason there is a shortage of parking this year, the waterfront shopping centre is not too far away, or other possibility is parking on Blaxland Rd just over the opposite side of the train station. (The start/finish line is about 500m away from the Rhodes train station.)

Start and finish lines are 200 meters apart.

Just note if you are driving we will have closed Shoreline Dr.
