Brisbane City Council ‘Green Bridges Program

Making it easier to get around Brisbane city, either by foot, bike and scooter, or by using public transport.

Architecture & Access is the accessibility consultant providing Brisbane City Council with experienced assistance and guidance, ensuring the Green Bridges Program achieves its goal of aiming to reach accessibility and inclusion standards beyond compliance.

Architecture & Access’ role is to ensure that accessibility is considered in the design of the Bridges and its connections, as these structures are not considered a building, and therefore not governed by the building code.

The bridges and connections were assessed, relative to the current requirements referenced in the Australian Standards that cover external pathways, street furniture, lighting, wayfinding and tactile ground surface indicators and Brisbane City Councils A City for Everyone: Draft Inclusive Brisbane Plan 2019-2029 – Theme 1: Connect. A city where everyone moves around safely and easily. These documents were used as the agreed benchmark to meet the objectives of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) of safe, dignified, and equitable access are for all users of this infrastructure.

More than just a bridge project, the Kangaroo Point Green Bridge will become a must-visit destination for residents and visitors to Brisbane, with the final design featuring several unique riverside dining opportunities.

In June 2021, Council awarded the contract to Connect Brisbane, led by BESIX Watpac, to design and construct the Kangaroo Point Green Bridge. Construction will start in late 2021, with expected completion by late 2023.
