The Jim Stynes Bridge reminds people of the contribution the 2010 Melburnian of the Year had made to Melbourne. Jim Stynes represented the quintessential Melbourne story: A migrant made good. The story of his settling in Melbourne, his outstanding AFL career, his philanthropy and charity work, and his brave fight against cancer touched us all. Designed by engineers Aurecon in partnership with Cox Architecture, a bronze plaque at each end of the bridge tells the life story of Stynes, who died in 2012.
