Bridge proposed to connect Kangaroo Island to South Australian mainland

By on 07 August 2018

As a way of boosting the local economy and enhancing tourism, a massive 14-kilometre bridge linking Kangaroo Island to the South Australian mainland has been proposed.

According to the local council’s website, Kangaroo Island, located 110-kilometre South-West of Adelaide, is home to around 4,400 people yet it receives an influx of around 190,000 visitors annually. It is only accessible by air or by sea – the latter reportedly taking an hour and a half to make the crossing.

A group called the Universal Bridging Consortium unveiled its proposal to construct an elaborate suspension bridge linking the island and mainland to better connect locals with the mainland and improve accessibility for visitors.
