Beginning on the East Derwent Highway at the original Tasmanian settlement site at Risdon Cove on the eastern bank of the Derwent, you can follow the road through Risdonvale along Grass Tree Hill Rd and onwards into Richmond.
The bridge is a single arched miniature model of the more famous triple arched vaulted bridge at Ross. The construction of the bridge was completed after Lieutenant Governor Arthur’s tenure had finished in Tasmania.
