Indooroopilly Bridges over Brisbane River
« on: July 27, 2014, 03:38:52 PM »
Presently 4 bridges

Albert Bridge opened 1895, original lost in flood 1893.

Walter Taylor Bridge opened 1936.

Indooroopilly rail bridge  1957, part of Ipswich line quadruplication project.

Jack Pesche bridge  opened 1998.

The Albert bridge (suburban tracks) was originally a pedestrian and rail bridge until Walter Taylor bridge opened.

By the way, I strongly recommend going on one of the guided tours of the Walter Taylor Bridge. You can book on Brisbane Greeters website.

I hope the council do not get their grubby mitts on this. Parkland and road bridge are generally two opposing concepts. It would be some very nice parkland with the noisy road going through it.

Wouldn't the bridge run on the edge of the parkland only?

I'm not too concerned. That area should be a bus interchange though - might be useful if there were a change of administration down at City Hall. Dutton Park has a huge bridge and busway through it, doesn't seem like a big deal.
Negative people... have a problem for every solution.

Let us hope if it goes ahead that there is a consideration of PT.
