Five new green bridges across Brisbane
Brisbane City Council is getting you home quicker and safer with less traffic congestion and more travel options, so you can spend less time on the road and more time doing what’s important.
By building five new green bridges across Brisbane, we’re getting more cars off the road and giving you more choice when it comes to travel.
The Lord Mayor’s 2019-20 Budget included $6.1 million to begin planning. The five new green bridges will make it even easier for you to get around our city using public transport, or by bike or on foot. The new bridges will link Kangaroo Point to the CBD, Toowong to West End, St Lucia to West End as well as new crossings at Breakfast Creek and Bellbowrie.

Kangaroo Point Pedestrian Bridge
The Kangaroo Point Pedestrian Bridge is the first of the five bridges to be delivered as part of Council’s Green Bridges for Brisbane program. It will cater for pedestrians and cyclists, connecting the city centre to Kangaroo Point.
The preliminary business case for the Kangaroo Point Pedestrian Bridge is now complete.
Together with the other green bridge initiatives, the Kangaroo Point Pedestrian Bridge presents an opportunity to improve the way people travel to and within the inner city, creating a cleaner, greener and more active city for generations to come.
The bridge will provide significant benefits, including:
- increased walking and cycling trips
- improved connectivity to the city-wide pedestrian and cycle network
- improved connectivity to public transport services in the CBD and on Main Street, Kangaroo Point
- fewer cars on the local road network
- improved community health and lifestyle benefits for residents, including improved access to the river
- accelerated development and activation in both the CBD and Kangaroo Point, including new tourism opportunities.
In comparison to other bridges, the Kangaroo Point Pedestrian Bridge is forecast to carry more pedestrians and cyclists than the Kurilpa Bridge, with Kangaroo Point Pedestrian Bridge expected to carry 1800 more people each day after its opening.
With the preliminary business case for the Kangaroo Point Pedestrian Bridge clearly demonstrating the benefits of the project and value-for-money for Brisbane’s ratepayers, Council is now proceeding to the next stages of project planning.

Feedback from the community will play a critical role in the development of the Kangaroo Point Pedestrian Bridge.
In November 2019, Council will provide a range of opportunities for the local community to learn more about the project and provide their input.
