About the project

The existing pedestrian bridge in the Lota Camping Reserve was identified as having reached the end of its serviceable life and required replacing.

The new pedestrian bridge means the local community can continue to safely visit the lookout at the top of the reserve and the existing footpath network. This project helps create more to see and do in a clean and green Brisbane, with opportunities to enjoy our beautiful climate and connect with family and friends in places that make our city great.

Project details

The project included:

  • Removing the existing pedestrian bridge connecting Grace Street to the elevated lookout area.
  • Constructing a new pedestrian bridge in the same location, with stone pitched abutment protection on both sides of the gully.
  • Some vegetation trimming to allow for the replacement of the structure.

We also re-turfed the area around the construction site and replenished the granite gravel on the stairs on either side of the bridge.
