Commonwealth Avenue Bridge
Constructed before the lake was filled, it was opened in late 1963. Sewer mains are cleverly incorporated into the superstructure and the south-east decorative pylon is actually a vent.
When Waterloo Bridge in London was demolished in 1936, some of the large, flat stones from it were donated to the Australian Government. These are now displayed under the bridge, on the northern shore.
