About the project

We are pleased to announce that works to repair the control system for the New Farm swing bridge are now complete.

The New Farm swing bridge connects the New Farm Riverwalk with the pathway along Riverview Court and provides access to the Brisbane River for nearby properties.

The electrical control system experienced issues after the February 2022 severe weather event and required replacement to ensure the bridge operates successfully in the future.

These works have ensured that the bridge will continue operating successfully into the future.

Project Details

Works included:

  • removing the existing electrical control system and installing a new system
  • completing maintenance works on the mechanical features of the bridge to ensure full working capacity with the new electrical system.

As part of the project, final inspections are required, and any defect works, including handrail works, may be undertaken in the coming months.

The bridge asset will then move into a routine monitoring and maintenance schedule and be checked intermittently as part of this.
