Construction activities at the Kangaroo Point site in May 2022 will include:
- temporary diversions to the shared pathways and construction of a new shared path in C.T. White Park
- vegetation removal including clearing of vegetation from the riverbank where construction activities will take place
- construction of a platform in preparation for piling in C.T. White Park
- site office sewerage connection works in C.T. White Park and Hamilton Street.
Changes to parking in Hamilton, Bright and MacDonald Streets occurred in late April 2022. The parking restrictions enable large vehicles to deliver materials and machinery safely to the Kangaroo Point construction site.
What to expect
- Temporary changes to shared path access in C.T. White Park. See new shared path location on the map below.
- Noise associated with the use of equipment and machinery such as excavators, rollers, cranes, and trucks.
- Traffic control and signage to direct pedestrians, cyclists, scooter riders and motorists around the work areas, as required.
- An increase in workers and construction vehicles to deliver equipment and machinery via Main, Bright, Hamilton and Scott Streets.

Construction will generally be undertaken between 7am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm Saturdays.
Some out-of-hours works will be required due to ambient temperature requirements for concrete pours. Advance notice will be provided for any planned out-of-hours works.
Marine-based construction activity
Piling and drilling for the new bridge foundations will recommence in the Brisbane River closer to the CBD in June 2022.
Piling can result in increased levels of noise and vibration. There will be noise as the hammer drives the steel casings into the riverbed, and noise associated with the use of equipment such as excavators, cranes, drill rigs and concrete pumps.
More information on marine-based construction can be found on the Kangaroo Point Green Bridge construction page.
