Description :

View of the River Torrens looking across to the King William Street bridge.

The River Torrens flows from Mount Pleasant in the Adelaide Hills through Adelaide and to the sea at West Beach. It is mainly used for recreational purposes.

Known as the Adelaide Bridge, the bridge carrying King William Road over the River Torrens was opened in 1931 and was the third bridge on the site. It was designed to be the same width as the road so that a bottleneck would not be created for traffic travelling between the city and North Adelaide.
