Brisbane’s newest Green bridge designs revealed
RACQ has encouraged residents to have their say on two new proposed green bridges for Brisbane.
Brisbane City Council released new images of the potential bridges at Breakfast Creek and Kangaroo Point and opened it up for open expression of interest applications mid-September.
RACQ Head of Public Policy Rebecca Michael said the Club welcomed the fast-tracking of the Green Bridge program, including the design and construction of Kangaroo Point bridge.
“We lobbied Brisbane City Council in the lead up to the Council election to request this project be fast-tracked to stimulate the economy and support jobs in the region,” Dr Michael said.
“These bridges will also provide a safe and efficient active transport connection and provide another alternative to using cars, leading to less congestion.
“Since COVID-19, we’ve also seen an increase in walking and cycling and this infrastructure will help support that demand.”
Dr Michael also called on Brisbane City Council to plan and fast-track upgrades to connect walking and cycling paths to and from the bridges.
“Better connectivity will enable a safer end-to-end journey for Brisbane residents,” she said.
