About the project

The existing pedestrian bridge in Lota Camping Reserve was identified as having reached the end of its serviceable life and required replacing. Currently, the bridge serves as a pedestrian crossing for access to the local lookout and replacing the structure will ensure continued access for the residents of Brisbane.


Construction works will include:

  • removing the existing elevated structure and constructing of a new approximately 7-metre-long and 1.8-metre-wide elevated structure
  • stone pitched abutment protection on both sides of the gully as part of construction of the new structure
  • some vegetation trimming may be required to allow for the replacement of the structure.

Council has also identified four trees that may need to be removed to facilitate construction.

The main access track from Armytage Street to The Esplanade will remain open during construction. However, access to the lookout, via the bridge, will be closed while construction takes place.

Throughout construction, residents in close proximity to the works may experience some construction noise, increased vehicle movements and low levels of vibration and dust.


Works are anticipated to commence in early November 2021 and be completed in late January 2022, weather and site conditions permitting.

Works will be undertaken Monday to Friday, from 7am to 5pm, with occasional Saturday works as required.

Council will make every effort to minimise impacts to the local community and provide advance notification of any out-of-hours activities.
