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, lane and footpath closures in the area. These will be undertaken to ensure the safety of all road users and construction staff.
The City of Hobart and VEC are committed to minimising the impact on the community. When closures are in place, please follow signs and traffic controllers' directions. We apologise for any inconvenience the closures may cause and ask the public for their patience and cooperation.
