Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge over Brooker Avenue

The main walkway of the bridge was lifted into place on 2 February 2019. The next stage is the installation of the architectural canopy in autumn 2019. We will provide further details closer to the date.


About the bridge

A new, all-ability bicycle and pedestrian bridge over Brooker Avenue is a Transforming Hobart project which will advance Hobart’s pedestrian and cycling network, linking the city centre, from Bathurst Street, across Brooker Avenue, to Queens Domain sporting and recreation facilities, as well as to the Glebe residential area. The bridge is constructed by the City of Hobart together with VEC Civil Engineering.

Road and footpath closures

As part of the construction, VEC will be implementing several partial and full road closures and footpath closures and detours in the area. These will be undertaken to ensure the safety of all road users and construction staff.

VEC is working closely with the City of Hobart to limit the impact on the local and wider community.

Road closures for bridge works – February - March 2019

  • Bathurst Street from Campbell Street to Brooker Avenue will be closed intermittently overnight (for two to three nights per week) for crane and concrete works until late March.
  • Ongoing closure of the footpath above Brooker Avenue retaining wall while overhead works are in progress until mid- March. The pedestrian detour is through the University of Tasmania grounds.
  • Overnight closures of left two lanes of Brooker Avenue (southbound) for steelwork installation. The works are scheduled for three days from 14 to 16 February, from 8 pm to 6 am on both nights.
  • Further occasional lane closures in Brooker Avenue overnight for crane lifting works throughout February.
