Breakfast Creek green bridge

Brisbane City Council is building new green bridges across Brisbane to make it even easier for you to get around our city.

The Breakfast Creek green bridge will cater for pedestrians and cyclists and will activate a previously underutilised part of the Brisbane River, connecting the city's northern suburbs with the CBD.

It will provide an improved walking and cycling link between the new Lores Bonney Riverwalk, which was delivered as part of Council's Kingsford Smith Drive upgrade and the inner city.

The Breakfast Creek green bridge will also enhance recreational experiences along the Brisbane River.

Initial consultation on the project was undertaken in late 2019 as part of the Green Bridges Program's early planning phase. Council has completed a detailed analysis of all feedback received and prepared an Initial Consultation Outcomes report.

Key feedback received on this bridge included:

  • general support for the proposed alignment, with around 62% of people supporting this alignment
  • general support for improved connectivity for cyclists and pedestrians between the new Lores Bonney Riverwalk and the inner city, with approximately 50% of survey respondents indicating they would use the bridge daily or weekly.

Following positive community feedback on the Breakfast Creek green bridge, early site and technical investigations are now underway. These investigations will assist with finalising a concept design and supporting preliminary business case for further consultation with the community later in 2020. 

Subject to community feedback and government approvals, construction on the Breakfast Creek green bridge could commence as early as late 2021, with expected completion by the end of 2023.

Location

A proposed alignment extending from Kingsford Smith Drive at Albion to Breakfast Creek Road at Newstead has been identified.

Continued feedback from the community and stakeholders will play a critical role in further defining the project’s benefits, including the bridge’s final alignment, landing locations and design treatments.
