Melbourne is the capital and most populous city in the state of Victoria, and the second most populous city in Australia after Sydney.

The Webb Bridge was built between the northern and southern banks of the Yarra in 2003. It was designed by Denton Corker Marshall.

The design received first prize in a limited design competition. The brief called for the re-use of the remaining sections of the Webb Dock Rail Bridge, in order to link the Docklands on the north side to the new residential developments on the south side.
