Brisbane Metro Victoria Bridge fly-through video - supporting information
The animated fly-though video shows a revised design for Victoria Bridge released in September 2018. The revised design provides a separated two-way cycleway across the bridge, dedicated pedestrian pathways, and three lanes for Metro and bus services, as well as cycle lanes on either side of Melbourne Street.
The fly-through begins with a panning aerial view of Victoria Bridge looking towards the Brisbane Central District (CBD). The aerial view shows the reconfigured Victoria Bridge with a separated two-way cycleway, dedicated pedestrian pathways, and three lanes being used for Metro and bus services, as well as cycle lanes on either side of Melbourne Street.
The fly-through then drops down into a street view along Melbourne Street, travelling towards Victoria Bridge and the CBD, coming up to the new signalised scramble crossing at the intersection of Melbourne Street and Grey Street.
The fly-through then moves ahead to show cyclists and pedestrians moving inbound and outbound on the separated two-way cycleway and dedicated pedestrian pathway on the upstream side of the bridge. A CityGlider bus travelling towards the CBD can then be seen to stop at a signal at the bridge entry point and give priority to a Metro vehicle exiting the Cultural Centre portal and travelling across Victoria Bridge. The CityGlider then moves onto the bridge once the signal has turned green.
The fly-through then pans up to show a bird's-eye view of the reconfiguration of Victoria Bridge and connections to South Brisbane and the CBD. Pop-up labels then appear to highlight the improved benefits of the revised design - easy access for pedestrians, a separated two-way cycleway, and three lanes for Metro vehicles and buses.
The fly-through ends with a still image that shows an artist's impression of the revised design for Victoria Bridge.
