About the project

The new shared bridge connects pedestrians and cyclists between Eromanga Street Park and the Meadowbank Street Park bridge over Bulimba Creek.

The bridge needed to be replaced because it was nearing the end of its serviceable lifespan. The project replaced the bridge with a new bridge that now meets the current standard for public safety.

The upgrade has enhanced usability for pedestrians and cyclists with a widening crossing and has created a high quality, connected and accessible bikeway for residents of Brisbane's eastern suburbs.

The project included:

  • removing the old bridge structure
  • installation of a new, upgraded 3.1 metre-wide bridge structure with 1.4 metre-high, bike-safe handrails
  • protective creek works to enhance the operation of the waterway and prolong the life of the new bridge structure.

Project status

Construction started in early January 2019 and was completed in mid-July 2019.
