Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge over Brooker Avenue
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.
The main span of the bridge was lifted into place at the end of February with the architectural canopy being installed on Friday 20 September. The bridge is expected to be open to the public at the end of October.

Construction works for the remainder of the project
To assist with the completion of the bridge, VEC will be implementing several partial and full road closures, lane and footpath closures in the area. These will be undertaken to ensure the safety of all road users and construction staff.
Following successful installation of the main span canopy there will be overnight lane closures in Brooker Avenue and Liverpool Street for completion of overhead works. The lane closures are scheduled from Monday 23 September to Friday 27 September and Monday 30 September to Friday 4 October 2019.
