Brisbane City Council is building five new green bridges across Brisbane which will make it even easier to get around our city on foot, by bike, or public transport.

We're 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.

The new bridges will link Kangaroo Point to the Brisbane Central Business District (CBD), Toowong to West End, St Lucia to West End, as well as new crossings at Breakfast Creek and Bellbowrie. View our proposed green bridge locations map.

Council has released the Initial Consultation Outcomes for the Green Bridges Program, which provides a summary of the key feedback themes identified through the program's initial consultation phase in late 2019.

Feedback will play a critical role in the development of each project during their early planning stages, including determining the preferred alignment, landing locations and design features for each bridge.

Council will provide further opportunities for residents to have their say on each green bridge later in 2020.

Green bridges is one of the key initiatives of the Transport Plan for Brisbane – Implementation Plan 2018.

Brisbane City Council is making Brisbane better by building five new green bridges.

We’re getting more cars off the road and making it even easier for you to get around our city using public transport, by bike or on foot.

Brisbane is a growing city so we’re investing in clean and green infrastructure.

The five new green bridges will link to public transport, walking and cycling networks, reducing congestion and providing faster and more convenient access to connect with the people and places that make our city great, including new and improved public spaces on the Brisbane River.

The new bridges will link Kangaroo Point to the Brisbane Central Business District, Toowong to West End, St Lucia to West End, as well as new crossings at Breakfast Creek and Bellbowrie.

Initial planning is now underway to help plan and deliver these exciting projects.

Have your say to help make the Brisbane of tomorrow even better than the Brisbane of today.

Supporting information

The Green Bridges for Brisbane video provides information about the program and about each of the five proposed bridge locations.

It shows an animation of pedestrians and cyclists travelling across a bridge.

The video shows an aerial view of Brisbane, with five pop up icons indicating the locations of the proposed bridges.

  • Kangaroo Point to the CBD
  • Toowong to West End
  • St Lucia to West End
  • Breakfast Creek
  • Bellbowrie.

The video includes animations to communicate the program benefits, including that the bridges will:

  • link to public transport, walking and cycling networks,
  • reduce traffic congestion
  • improve access for pedestrians and cyclists.

The video includes aerial footage of each of the five proposed bridge locations, with an animated sketch of a bridge overlayed on the footage to show the proposed bridge alignment.
