Green Bridge – Kangaroo Point to Brisbane City


A development application has been lodged for operational works to accommodate the foundations of the new Green Bridge that will traverse the Brisbane River from Scott Street, Kangaroo Point to Alice Street, Brisbane City.

Bridge Position

Designed by ARUP and Cox, the proposal seeks operational work for prescribed tidal works, operational work for removal, destruction or damage of marine plants and development on a Queensland heritage place.

The foundation of the new bridge landing will be located on the corner of Alice Street and Edward Street, at the entrance to the Brisbane Botanic Gardens. The foundation of the landing at Kangaroo Point will be
positioned above C.T. White Park and forms an alignment with Scott Street.
