The Brisbane City Council has released new concept images of two new Green Pedestrian Bridges and is seeking the public consultation to provide feedback on the designs.

Proposed Green Bridge Locations

Adrian Schrinner, Lord Mayor of Brisbane announced that procurement process will commence for the $257 million worth of critical pedestrian and cycle green bridge infrastructure and the start of early works at Kangaroo Point and Breakfast Creek.

“We have fast-tracked these new bridges because they’re major job drivers, which is critical as we climb our way out of the coronavirus economic crisis,” 

“Our city has sustained a brutal economic hit this year, but my administration is determined that we build for the future. This means we get people into work now and critical infrastructure projects like these bridges are how we do that”.

“Kicking off this procurement process quickly is also about breathing life into the local construction industry and expanding supplier opportunities for struggling businesses,” the Lord Mayor said.

It was outlined that the infrastructure fast-tracked $257 million will contribute to the local construction industry, with the two bridges alone expected to employ over 500 workers at its peak.

“The Green Bridges program is a milestone in our city’s construction history,” “Community feedback plays a crucial role in developing each bridge, and I encourage residents to have their say on the latest designs of the Kangaroo Point and Breakfast Creek green bridges,” Cr Schrinner added.

Initial work on the bridges starting in 2021, with geotechnical drilling, ground and hydrographic surveys already taking place since April 2020.

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.
