I’ve lived here a long time and driven over the bridge countless times. Finally did the walk across. Glad I did but it is very windy.

Crossed the bridge several times in our travels around town - it looks good and traffic flows okay but too many vehicles for me to do anything but drive - no sightseeing

Crossed the Tasman bridge multiple time while we holidayed in Tasmania.
Crossing the bridge was uneventful and the 3rd lane changed direction, depending on the volume of traffic.
Unfortunately, we couldn't stop to view the scenery or walk on it.

We were able to view the bridge from the SkyBus as we entered Hobart and from the MONA ferry as we returned from our day out. Maritime History had a very interesting diorama of the bridge and the tragedy that unfolded.

Tasman Bridge connects East and West Hobart. It is best known for the disaster in January 1975. when a bulk carrier crashed into the bridge, killing 12 people. It was one of a series of disasters that helped eject the Whitlam Labor government from office. Memories are short, and few people from outside of Tasmania remember this historic event.

Approach roadways at both ends are clearly signed which is so important for someone not familiar with Hobart. As you take the eastern approach, you can't but remember the 1975 disaster and the people who died when the Lake Illawarra struck the piers and part of the bridge collapsed, then be thankful the bridge is intact and safe today. The Tasman is a really beautiful girder bridge.

Crossed the bridge in a taxi on our way from the airport with the driver telling us a little about the history. Drove across it a week later, well signed and easy for a stranger to navigate. I recall the black & white TV pictures following the bridge disaster in 1975 and the Holden cars perched on the edge. This upgraded bridle is very functional with the middle lane interchangeable in direction in peak traffic thanks to the addition of a 5th lane during the reconstruction. A view of the bridge from land is more spectacular that from actually being on the bridge.

On the evening of 5 January 1975. a bulk carrier crashed into the Tasman Bridge. The Tasman Bridge connects the east and west of Hobart, which are separated by the River Derwent. Twelve people died, but the social impact was profound. The bridge was eventually rebuilt. It is now a familiar sight to anyone who has visited Hobart, capital of the Apple Isle.

Spectacular looking bridge. they close lanes to get in and out of hobart depending on time of day. Didn't realise so many people had to get into hobart in the mornings.
