I never knew that as Lennox Crossing. I always thought it was Commonwealth Bridge. In my mind Lennox Crossing was a low level bridge that came near the old Canberra Hospital (National Museum) from the back of Albert Hall.

That’s not Lennox Crossing, that’s the second Commonwealth Ave Bridge, built mid 1920s.

You are right, Lennox Crossing was slightly further west of the present day Commonwealth Avenue Bridge. Being a low level crossing it was very prone to flooding so the Commonwealth Avenue bridge was built as a high level bridge to alleviate this. Sorry, I was just being a bit lazy with the labeling. Personal uppercut!
