Birkenhead Bridge was a movable bridge, so that boats can pass through the Port River. It is also the site of a future third Port River crossing, the Port River Expressway, another opening bridge which is designed to ease traffic congestion in the area. Birkenhead is essentially a residential suburb, with a minor harbourside presence on the southern and eastern shores of the suburb.
