Hawkesbury City Council has created a Windsor Bridge Survey asking people to vote if they would like to Save Windsor Bridge – Yes or No.

The Mayor of Hawkesbury, Councillor Barry Calvert, has alerted the Defenders of Thompson Square about the survey and they fully support the idea of a community survey.

“Voting is simple – just go to online to Your Hawkesbury Your Say and cast your vote on whether you want to Save Windsor Bridge,” Mayor Calvert said.

“Personally, I will be voting yes because once this bridge is gone, it is gone forever.

“Whether you are a local business or tourism operator, a resident, a Hawkesbury visitor, a member of a historic society or simply someone who wants to enjoy walking on this heritage bridge, you can take this simple survey that has one question: Do you want to save Windsor Bridge?

“We are conducting this survey as part of community consultation that we believe the State Government should have done a long time ago. Such consultation about the demolition of the historic Windsor Bridge has been seriously lacking,” the Mayor said.

“There has been a great deal of discussion about the replacement bridge but most people were unaware that the demolition of the old bridge was also going to take place. In the information distributed about the new bridge by the State Government, the fate of the old bridge was hardly mentioned.

“Hawkesbury City Council supports saving our historic Windsor Bridge. We are asking the State Government to immediately stop the demolition of the old Windsor Bridge and conduct a proper public consultation about the bridge’s future.”

The 1874 bridge offers huge tourism potential to the Hawkesbury community as a gathering place for events, markets and a link over the Hawkesbury River from Windsor and it is a vital part of our historical and cultural identity.

The bell was moved from the campaign launch location of Thompson Square to the Museum to provide a secure location that is accessible to the public. The Museum was chosen as it is part of the historic precinct that is close to the location of the bridge. Locating the bell at the Museum also means that Museum staff are able to ensure COVID-Safe guidelines are maintained. Museum staff will also be on hand to answer any questions about the petition and the historic Windsor Bridge.
