Brisbane City Council is building new green bridges across Brisbane which will make it even easier to get around our city on foot, by bike or scooter, or by connecting with 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 a new crossing at Breakfast Creek. View our proposed green bridge locations map.

Council is getting on with the job of delivering its Green Bridges Program to help stimulate the local economy and create jobs as the coronavirus impacts are felt across our city.

Brisbane City Council is fast-tracking construction of our Green Bridges Program to create jobs and kickstart the local economy as the challenges of coronavirus hit our city hard.

The new green bridges will make it even easier for you to get around our city by bike, on foot, or by connecting with public transport.

The new bridges will link Kangaroo Point to the CBD, Toowong to West End, St Lucia to West End, as well as a new crossing at Breakfast Creek.

By building new green bridges across Brisbane we’re getting more cars off the road and giving you more choice when it comes to travel.

Fast-tracking construction of the Kangaroo Point and Breakfast Creek green bridges will bring forward critical investment in Brisbane sooner.

With both bridges expected to be completed by the end of 2023.

The Kangaroo Point green bridge will make it easier to walk or cycle between Kangaroo Point, the eastern suburbs and the CBD.

The Breakfast Creek green bridge will provide the missing walking and cycling link between the new Lores Bonney Riverwalk and the inner city, connecting the northern suburbs with the CBD.

Planning for the Toowong to West End and St Lucia to West End green bridges is in the early stages with investigations also underway for a fifth green bridge location.

Fast-tracking green bridges is part of Brisbane City Council’s plan to shape a better Brisbane and support our economy.
