The first of the five new green bridges to be built across the city, Kangaroo Point Pedestrian Bridge is now on its detailed planning stage and Council is now seeking community feedback on this exciting project. 

Members of the community have before Friday 6 December 2019 to have their say by participating in an online survey or attending any of the information sessions scheduled throughout November and early December 2019. 

The Kangaroo Point Pedestrian Bridge is envisioned to be one of the city’s busiest walking and cycling bridges once it is delivered, improving connectivity for Kangaroo Point residents and those in the eastern and south-eastern suburbs, as well as improving access to the river and amenities. 

The estimated capital cost of the project is $190 million, with the final figures to be confirmed after concluding technical investigations, designs, and community consultation. 

Subject to changes after further investigation and results of community consultation, the proposed alignment will extend from the Alice/Edward Street roundabout near the City Botanic Gardens to Scott Street at Kangaroo Point.

Including the Kangaroo Point Bridge, the four other proposed green bridges are:

  • Toowong to West End Bridge – from near Archer Street in Toowong, across the Brisbane River to Orleigh Park, near Forbes Street in West End
  • Bellbowrie Bridge – from the river end of Weekes Road in Bellbowrie to Grindle Road in Wacol 
  • Breakfast Creek Bridge – from Kingsford Smith Drive at Albion to Breakfast Creek Road at Newstead. 
  • St Lucia to West End Bridge – from the corner of Keith Street and Macquarie Street in St Lucia across the Brisbane River to the southern end of Boundary Street in West End.

At least two-thirds of the funding for the Green Bridges program will come from the Brisbane City Council and contributions for the balance to be sought from the Queensland and Australian governments. The Kangaroo Point bridge is expected to commence construction as early as 2021 and completed by 2024.
