Work on the proposed Kangaroo Point Green Bridge has already started and the project is slated to receive an additional $190.2 million in funds as a priority initiative.

Demolition of the roundabout on Edward and Alice Streets commenced in early 2022. Construction by the river has also started and mooring areas for the sailboats and yachts have been closed off. 

The new green bridge is expected to be completed in late 2023.

Additional funds for the project will be made available through a newly inked SEQ City Deal worth $1.8 billion.

“The SEQ City Deal will provide the platform for SEQ to become one region that is connected locally and competing globally.

“This connectivity will drive productivity for our businesses, improve the liveability of our communities and lift the global competitiveness of our region.

The bridge will be named in honour of the Olympic Games as it has been seen as the element that will define Brisbane prior to the 2032 Olympics. 

“When people around the world start considering coming to the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games, I am sure one of the drawcards will be images of this spectacular pedestrian bridge,” Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said.

“Not only will pictures of the Kangaroo Point Green Bridge help convince people to venture to our corner of the world, but it will also be a critical piece of infrastructure during the games, helping spectators get to the Gabba Stadium.

“For Brisbane residents, this bridge will deliver a link that people have talked about for years while improving connectivity and being a destination in its own right.”

Meanwhile, also included in the landmark SEQ City Deal are the following projects:

The SEQ City Deal will be implemented in late 2022 between the Commonwealth of Australia, the State Government of Queensland, and the Council of Mayors of South East Queensland with connecting infrastructure as the priority.
