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 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.

Survey works and technical investigations are now underway to help inform the designs for the bridges, with Council fast-tracking the delivery of the Kangaroo Point and Breakfast Creek green bridges to bring forward critical investment in Brisbane following coronavirus.

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.

As a result of community feedback, Council will not be progressing the proposed Bellbowrie green bridge. Council is committed to investigating other locations for a fifth green bridge as part of the Green Bridges Program and will make more information available as planning progresses.

Feedback will continue to 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.
