Lane Cove River


Lane Cove River

The Lane Cove River is a tributary of the Parramatta River and its lower reaches form an arm of Sydney Harbour, Australia. The Lane Cove River rises near Thornleigh and flows generally south for about 15 km. The upper reaches are in a narrow, forested valley eroded into the North Shore Plateau. The middle reaches are impounded by a weir near Fullers Bridge. Sections of the valley form the Lane Cove National Park. The Lane Cove river is known for its involvement with the mysterious deaths of Gilbert Bogle and Margaret Chandler on January 1 1963.The lower reaches of the Lane Cove River are tidal and merge into Sydney Harbour at Greenwich and Hunters Hill. There are significant areas of mangrove trees on the shores.

Bridges

There are only four bridges which cross the Lane Cove River. These are:
*De Burgh's Bridge on Metroad 3 which connects North Ryde and West Pymble.
*Fullers Bridge on State Route 29, which connects Chatswood and North Ryde.
*Epping Road on State Route 28, connecting Lane Cove to Ryde, also carrying traffic from the M2 Hills Motorway.
*Fig Tree Bridge on Burns Bay Road, which connects Lane Cove West and Hunters Hill.
