About the project

Bretts Wharf Riverwalk is a pedestrian and bicycle, concrete, shared path suspended over the north bank of the Brisbane River at Hamilton. The structure is 210 metres long and 4.8 metres wide and runs east from Bretts Wharf ferry terminal.

During regular maintenance inspections, Council identified that a section of the riverwalk, adjacent to Bretts Wharf Apartments, required work to enhance the life of the structure and ensure that it remains safe and serviceable, without restrictions, for the benefit of users.

The Bretts Wharf Riverwalk rehabilitation project is part of Council's Boardwalk Rehabilitation Program. This project is part of Council's commitment to improving quality of life for residents while ensuring our city has the services and infrastructure to meet the needs of future generations.

Project information

Works involved:

  • installing a rock armour seawall
