Brisbane’s most iconic bridge, the Story Bridge in Kangaroo Point, will be closed for three days on 27-30 April as part of the Brisbane City Council’s waterproofing project.

The bridge will be closed between Main St and Bowen Terrace. There will be detours to divert traffic towards either the Captain Cook Bridge or through the Clem7. Clem7 toll will be free during the closure.

Over 100,000 cars use the bridge every day and with this upcoming closure, motorists must expect congestion in various parts of the city.

The works involve:

  • Asphalt removal from the concrete deck
  • Concrete cleaning
  • New asphalt top surface
  • New line marking
  • Bridge joint resealing

Police and traffic controllers will be present onsite to ensure safety for everyone.

The installation of a new waterproofing system is important to maintain the concrete elements.
