About the project

The Bedivere Street Bridge provides a key transport link across Old Cleveland Road, to and from Carindale Shopping Centre. Routine bridge inspections in 2019 identified the existing steel barriers are approaching the end of their useful life. To maintain the bridge structure, the steel barriers will be replaced, alongside minor concrete repairs and other general maintenance.

Works involve:

  • removal and replacement of existing steel barriers and road expansion joints
  • minor concrete repairs
  • maintenance of overhanging vegetation.

Equipment and machinery, including lighting towers, jackhammers, concrete grinders, crane trucks and elevated working platforms will be used to complete these works.

Project update

The Bedivere Street Bridge closure has been rescheduled to July 2023, weather and maintenance conditions permitting. We will notify you in advance of the new closure dates.

Work hours

Work will be completed during night work hours of 8pm and 5am, Sunday to Friday when traffic volumes on the bridge are lowest, and to ensure the safety of workers and road users.

What the community can expect

To complete these works as quickly and safely as possible, the following temporary traffic changes will be required during project work hours only.

Bedivere Street Bridge full road closure

The Bedivere Street Bridge (both Northbound and Southbound lanes) will be temporarily closed to motorists. During this time, a temporary detour will be in place for motorists, via Millennium Boulevard, Creek Road, Cuthred Street and Edred Street.

Footpath access on the bridge will remain open to pedestrians and cyclists (dismounted).

Old Cleveland Road partial lane and footpath closure

Partial lane closures on Old Cleveland Road (directly below Bedivere Street Bridge) will be required. Road access in both directions (Eastbound and Westbound) will remain open to motorists at all times.  

Intermittent footpath closures on Old Cleveland Road (Southern side, between Cardinale Street and Creek Road) will occur. During this time, alternative access is available via Creek Road, Millennium Boulevard and Carindale Street.

Carindale Interchange Park ‘n’ Ride

Prior to works commencing each night shift, a temporary exclusion zone is required to be established in the Carindale Interchange Park ‘n’ Ride (located directly below the bridge) for safety.

During project work hours, approximately 16 car parking bays in the Carindale Interchange Park ‘n’ Ride, will be unavailable to motorists. 

Construction impacts

Nearby residents and businesses may experience some temporary impacts during these works, including intermittent noise, dust and increased lighting. Council will work to minimise impacts as much as possible. We appreciate your patience and cooperation while we carry out this important work.

Onsite Queensland Police Service (QPS), traffic control, and signage will be in place to direct motorists, pedestrians and cyclists through the area. The public should follow all signs and directions on site, for safety.

Site Compound

A temporary site compound and laydown area will be established from late June 2023, weather and maintenance conditions permitting. These facilities will be located in the Carindale Recreational Reserve and the grassed area, between Bedivere Street and the Old Cleveland Road entry ramp.
