Silverwater Bridge is one of the major road crossings of the Parramatta River in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. The bridge carries Silverwater Road over the river to link Silverwater in the south to Rydalmere and Ermington in the north. Other crossings over the Parramatta River include the Gladesville Bridge and Ryde Bridge. The origin of the suburb's name, and subsequently the bridge's name, is unknown. It may have been a reference to the nearby Parramatta River which could have provided silver reflections of light off the water. Silverwater bridge opened in 1962.
