A viaduct was built over Boundary Road in 1916 to expedite trips by tram from the eastern suburbs to the city. This became the second tram route to Bondi which ran via Paddington, Edgecliff Road, Bellevue Hill and Birriga Road.
I am not sure that the footway was built to facilitate the trams, or after the tramways system in the eastern suburbs was dismantled in the late 50s. In 1966 The State Governor became Sir Roden Cutler. I wonder if the walkway was tacked onto the tram viaduct as recently as this.
For a similar, but shorter walkway, see Jim's Sydney City and Suburbs.
