Green Bridge Design – St Lucia to West End


The Brisbane City Council has released new concept images of a new Green Pedestrian Bridge and is seeking the public consultation to provide feedback on the design.

Proposed Green Bridge Locations

The St Lucia to West End Green Bridge will make it easier to walk or ride between t Lucia, The University of Queensland, West End, Highgate Hill and the CBD.

In late 2020 and early 2021 Brisbane City Council facilitated community consultation and additional investigations to inform a preliminary business case, Council has prepared a concept design for the St Lucia to West End Green Bridge for community feedback.

Based on the preferred alignment, Council has prepared a concept design  from Guyatt Park, St Lucia to Orleigh Park (near Morry Street), West End.

The St Lucia to West End Green Bridge concept design aims to provide a modern bridge structure that provides new connections for the public to view the river, access each side and enjoy local parks.

Detail Design
– a ground anchored long-span suspension bridge
– four gently inclined masts, with a total length of about 310m
– dedicated pathways for walkers and riders (6m minimum width)
– bridge clearance height of 11.4m (70m wide navigation channel)
– ensures CityCats can continue to operate safely
– rest points, seating and viewing opportunities
– shade across the full width of the main bridge span.

St Lucia Landing
– Access to and from the green bridge via a ramp incorporated into the park.
– Improved riverside park space with shade, seating and viewing areas.
– Walking and riding access through Guyatt Park

West End Landing
– Access to and from the green bridge
– over-water circular ramp that minimises impacts on Orleigh Park.
– Access to high-frequency bus services.
– New and upgraded seating, lighting and signage.
– Access to routes within Orleigh Park and Orleigh Street.
– Ongoing connections to Montague Road and Riverside Drive

Key Benifits
– Boosts inner city movement and cross river access
– Better connects existing green transport routes
– Reduces reliance on private vehicle trips and decreases vehicle emissions
– Supports a clean, green and sustainable city and healthy lifestyle.

As a result of community feedback, Council will not be progressing the proposed Bellbowrie green bridge, though the Brisbane City Council has outlined it is committed to investigating other locations for the fifth green bridge as part of the Green Bridges Program and will make more information available.
