About the Green Bridges Program
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 new green bridges across Brisbane, we’re getting more cars off the road and giving you more choice when it comes to travel.
The new green bridges will make it even easier for you to get around our city on foot, by bike or scooter, or by connecting with public transport. They will create a healthier, more active city, providing positive impacts to lifestyle, amenity and tourism, and economic benefits resulting from improved accessibility and reduced congestion on the ferry, bus and road networks.
Council has committed the city’s largest ever investment in active transport with a $300 million commitment over the next four years to deliver the Kangaroo Point and Breakfast Creek Green Bridges.
In total, Council will invest up to $550 million for its transformational plan to build new green bridges and will seek funding contributions from the Queensland and Australian governments.
Green bridges is one of the key initiatives of the Transport Plan for Brisbane – Implementation Plan 2018.
Your feedback will play a critical role in developing each project, including landing locations, design treatments and ongoing connections to the city-wide walking and cycling network.
Following feedback from the community and key stakeholders, Council has extended the consultation period. Consultation is now open until Wednesday 31 March 2021.
You can also provide your feedback on these green bridges by dropping into an upcoming information session to talk to members of the project team.

Community and stakeholder feedback is critical to the development of Council's new green bridges.
In late 2019, Council invited the community to have their say on the Green Bridges Program.
This initial phase of consultation introduced the Green Bridges Program to the community and provided people with an opportunity to give feedback during the early planning stages for each bridge.
Approximately 3500 people participated in the consultation program, with 3385 pieces of feedback received.
Council has completed a detailed analysis of all feedback received and prepared an Initial Consultation Outcomes report.

Kangaroo Point and Breakfast Creek Green Bridges
In August and September 2020, Council invited the community to have their say on the draft reference design for the Kangaroo Point Green Bridge and concept design for the Breakfast Creek Green Bridge.
Council has reviewed and analysed all feedback received and prepared a consultation summary document for these green bridges. Detailed consultation reports have also been prepared for these bridges outlining the consultation process and feedback received.
Feedback from this consultation phase will help inform the final designs for these green bridges, ahead of construction starting in late 2021, subject to approvals.
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.
Following consultation, Council will further investigate the benefits, impacts and costs of these new green bridges, and provide more opportunities for you to have your say on these projects in 2021.
Following mixed feedback received during the initial consultation phase in late 2019, further targeted consultation on the Bellbowrie Green Bridge was undertaken in May and June 2020 with the communities in the Pullenvale and Jamboree Wards.
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.
