Kings Bridge Launceston is a wrought iron arch bridge, running across the South Esk River. The bridge is constructed in 2 separate parts, the first being fabricated in Manchester, England. Thus the bridge began its life as a single lane crossing. In 1904, 40 years later Salisbury’s foundry in Launceston fabricated a duplicate span and it became a two lane bridge.
The Kings Bridge Launceston joins the city with the West Tamar Region of Tasmania. The wrought ironwork reflects brightly in the midday sun due to its intricate criss cross pattern. The river is a slightly muddy brown, simultaneously balanced by the blue reflections of the sky. The trees in the foreground have spontaneously materialised from broad brush strokes, and intricate fine branches.
Above the bridge sits a small hut, and a steep hillside covered in tall trees and bushland. The roof of a white building at the top of the hill reflects the sunlight back towards the sky.
