Green Bridge Design – West End to Toowong

FacebooktwittermailFacebooktwittermail

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 Toowong to West End Green Bridge will make it easier to walk or ride between the growing West End community and the Toowong Centre, rail and ferry services.

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 Toowong to West End Green Bridge for community feedback.



Based on the preferred alignment, Council has prepared a concept design  from the south east corner of 600 Coronation Drive, Toowong to Orleigh Park (near Forbes Street), West End.

The Toowong 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 curved single-mast cable stay bridge form
– length of about 280m and mast height of 75m above water level
– single water-based pier on the Toowong side of the Brisbane River
– dedicated pathways for walkers and riders (6m minimum width)
– bridge clearance height of 11.4 metres
– provision for a 70m wide navigation channel
– rest point and widened pathway (up to 9m) adjacent to the bridge mast
– seating and viewing areas, with shade along the length of the walking path
– a new riverside green space at the Toowong landing
– the landing at Orleigh Park with direct connection to pathway network.

Toowong Landing
– New riverside park and plaza with seating and landscaping
– Connection to existing walking and riding routes, via Archer Street.
– Opportunity for a future riding connection to the Bicentennial Bikeway.

West End Landing
– A direct connection to existing walking and riding paths
– New subtropical planting and park upgrades.
– Ongoing connections to the proposed St Lucia to West End Green Bridge.



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.
