About the project

The Brickyard Road pedestrian bridge is a key active transport infrastructure facility, providing an important link between Virginia and Geebung across Downfall Creek and facilitates access to Virginia State School, Downfall Creek Dog Park and popular walking and cycling paths.

The existing concrete bridge was constructed in the 1930s and had reached the end of its serviceable life. 

Project details

In order to maintain a safe crossing. Council replaced the previous bridge with a new 1.8-metre-wide bridge.

The project included:

  • removing the existing bridge structure
  • constructing a new bridge including piles and handrails
  • replacing the footpath connections on each side of the bridge to improve the approaches to the bridge and tie into existing footpaths
  • creek bank stabilisation and landscaping works.

Works to replace the bridge started in May and were completed in August 2021.

We would like to thank residents for their patience while these important works were completed.
