About the project

Brisbane City Council Lord Mayor announced in February, that Queensland’s most recognisable bridge will soon be getting a makeover as part of the Story Bridge Restoration Project.

The heritage-listed Story Bridge carries more than 30 million vehicles every year and is a vital link between the north and south sides of the Brisbane River.

This project is part of Council’s plan to proactively manage the city’s assets. The paint restoration will maintain this iconic structure, and ensures that our local road network continues to be safe and accessible for all users.

Works are expected to commence early 2020 and to be carried out in stages over a five-year period.

A tendering process is now underway to select a contractor to deliver the works. Council will announce the successful contractor late 2019.

Council will provide further information to the community as the project progresses and before any works begin on site.
