|B35||Goodwood Road (B35)|
B35 is a dual carriageway arterial route north of the Hobart CBD. It crosses the River Derwent via Bowen Bridge.
The Bowen Bridge was built with Federal funds following the collapse of the Tasman Bridge in 1975. 1 The bridge cost $49 million to construct and was built with the intention of assisting the commuters of Hobart, should something happen to the Tasman Bridge. The bridge is named after John Bowen who settled the first European Colony in Tasmania at Risdon Cove, which later would be moved to the other side of the Derwent to form Hobart. 2
