The bridge across the Clyde River was built in 1956 and now carries thousands of vehicles a day. Roadway clearance on the bridge is 5.1 metres. Clearance for shipping is 20 metres above high water level. The span is lifted on demand, an average of 1000 times annually.

The coastal resort town of Batemans Bay and its surrounding area, on the NSW south coast, are blessed with one of the most beautiful, natural environments in all of Australia. Situated on the mouth of the famous Clyde River, the spectacular combination of picturesque coastline, pristine waterways and lushly forested mountains provide a popular place to live or visit. Whilst most of the fame of the area is based on its environment, one particular man made icon of Batemans Bay is also well loved and respected by locals and visitors alike. The bridge over the Clyde River is particularly interesting as it is a rare lifting span type and, when operating to allow for vessels to pass beneath, is a fascinating marvel of engineering to witness.
