Meadowbank Street Park bridge replacement
Brisbane City Council is planning to replace the Meadowbank Street Park shared bridge in Carindale, which connects pedestrians and cyclists between Eromanga Street Park and the Meadowbank Street Park, over Bulimba Creek.
|Address||Meadowbank Street Park, Carindale|
|Project outcomes||Enhanced usability for pedestrians and cyclists with a widened crossing, provide a modern safe facility and reduce ongoing maintenance costs.|
|Latest update||Project introduction|
About the project
The existing bridge needs to be replaced as it is nearing the end of its serviceable lifespan. The project will replace the existing bridge with an updated design that meets the current standard for public safety. The new bridge will be a 3.1 metre-wide steel structure with 1.4 metre-high bike safe handrails and a concrete deck.
The upgrade will enhance usability for pedestrians and cyclists with a widened crossing and create a high quality, connected and accessible bikeway for residents of Brisbane’s eastern suburbs.
During construction, access to the bridge will be closed. A temporary bridge will be installed to maintain access for pedestrians and cyclists.
Council identified eight trees that were required to be removed as part of this project. These trees were removed in consultation with a Council arborist. Council will make every effort to minimise environmental impacts during construction. Vegetation impacts will be offset in accordance with Council policies and relevant legislative requirements.
To facilitate the offset requirements, Council will be working with Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee to replant trees in the area.
Construction is expected to start in early 2019 and be completed by mid-2019, weather and construction conditions permitting.
