The recently installed bridge deck span will help connect the CBD landing site at Alice and Edward Streets to the first bridge pier.

Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner anticipates that the Kangaroo Point Green Bridgeproject will be an icon for Brisbane when complete, with images of the bridge and its striking 83-metre mast certain to become synonymous with the city in the years to come.

The bridge is also expected to provide a critical link between the Gabba Stadium and the CBD, especially during the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

 “Wherever I go in Brisbane, people are keen to know more about this fantastic project, so it’s great we can start the year by announcing the bridge has reached this key milestone,” Cr Schrinner said.

Brisbane City Council has added two waterfront food and beverage opportunities to the project. The restaurant, which will feature both indoor and alfresco seating, will be set above water and promises stunning views of the river, the CBD, Story Bridge, and Kangaroo Point Cliffs.

It will also have its own cafe, measuring 90sqm and will be located near the new urban plaza that will be constructed where Edward and Alice Streets meet the Brisbane River.

Based on the Council’s timeline, the final fit out of the bridge and landing points, including paving and landscaping will take place in 2023. Later this year, they will work on the construction of the Main Street and Deakin Street connection.

Works for the green bridge are expected to be complete by 2024. Because of the works being done, Council is advising pedestrians, motorists, and cyclists to go on detour routes during the temporary fully road and footpath closure at the corner of Edward and Alice Streets.
