Homebush Bay Bridge was approved by the State Government on 19 March 2013. The bridge, which will link Rhodes peninsula to Wentworth Point, will carry buses, cyclists, pedestrians and emergency vehicles. Private vehicles and cars will not be permitted.

The $43 million bridge, is being provided by the developer Consortium of Fairmead Pty Ltd in return for additional development density at Wentworth Point. This arrangement involves a Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPA) between the developers and Roads and Maritime Services (RMS). Construction commenced in 2014 and is due to be completed in 2016/7.

Construction is now well underway. The project contractors, VSL Brady Joint Venture, have established a site compound on the Rhodes foreshore and piling work for the bridge foundations has now been completed.

A maritime exclusion zone across Homebush Bay has been in place since January 2015 and will remain for the duration of the construction period. The exclusion zone is marked with large yellow buoys and extends from Peake Ave at Rhodes across the water to Burroway Rd at Wentworth Point.
