Magura Street bridge replacement – Enoggera
We are pleased to announce that construction to upgrade and replace the Magura Street bridge in Enoggera will commence in early July 2022.
The bridge provides an important connection between South Pine Road and Pickering Street, making it easier for people to access Enoggera State School, public transport services, businesses and residential properties in the area.

About the project
The crossing upgrade is part of our ongoing program to improve access and connectivity by delivering new and upgraded bridges and crossings across creeks throughout Brisbane.
The existing bridge is a narrow 1-metre-wide connection that is well below current standards. This upgrade will provide improved access for pedestrians and cyclists to cross the waterway and access local facilities and businesses on either side.
To ensure we continue to provide access and connectivity to the local community, we will be upgrading the bridge to a 3.5-metre-wide connection with 2-metre-wide shared concrete paths on either end of the bridge – improving accessibility and safety for people walking and riding through the area.
Construction will commence in early July 2022 and is anticipated to be complete by late 2022, weather and site conditions permitting.
Works will be undertaken Monday to Saturday, from 7am to 5pm, with occasional night works as required. Advanced notification will be provided to local residents and businesses in close proximity to the site for any out-of-hours activities.
Throughout construction, businesses and residents in close proximity to the works may experience some construction noise, increased truck movements, low levels of vibration and dust, and changed traffic conditions, including minor traffic delays, reduced speed limits and temporary lane closures.
We will make every effort to maintain access to the existing bridge during construction, however, at times, we may need to restrict access for safety reasons.
Please look for signage onsite for information about any access changes that may be needed.
Works will include:
- earthworks, piling, and drainage works in preparation for building the new bridge
- building a new 3.5-metre-wide bridge
- building a 2-metre-wide shared concrete paths on either end of the bridge
- watermain relocation
- demolishing and removing the existing bridge following the completion of the new crossing.
We may need to undertake minor tree trimming at the Council-owned lot, 10 Magura Street, to establish a site compound. All works will be undertaken in consultation with a qualified arborist.
