Kangaroo Point Green Bridge – more than a bridge, it’s a destination
Brisbane City Council’s visionary Kangaroo Point Green Bridge is being delivered by the BESIX Watpac-led Connect Brisbane team.
The new landmark structure will grace Brisbane’s riverscape – an elegant, single-mast cable-stay bridge. Designed to reduce congestion on ferry, bus, and road networks, it will connect the City Botanic Gardens to Scott Street at Kangaroo Point.
Its features include dedicated pedestrian and cycle paths and landing points on both sides that have been designed to improve connections between the CBD and eastern suburb communities. Its green credentials comprise solar powered lighting, rain gardens to absorb storm water run-off, native plantings and strategically placed shade covers.
It is the innovative use of viewing platforms and rest nodes that will not only afford sweeping views of the meandering river, the ancient cliffs, and the city skyline, but will also provide distinctive eating options – yes, you will be able to dine on this bridge. Plans are in place for an above-water restaurant, and bar and café at the city landing.
Construction started late 2021 and is expected to be completed in 2024, sustaining 300 jobs during construction.
BESIX Watpac are working with long-time collaborators, BSF, to fabricate and erect this beacon of the river.
