Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge over Brooker Avenue
About the bridge
A new, all-ability bicycle and pedestrian bridge - to be called the Rose Garden Bridge - over Brooker Avenue is a Transforming Hobart project that will advance Hobart’s pedestrian and cycling network. It will link the city centre, from Bathurst Street and 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 and the bridge is now nearing completion.

Construction works for the remainder of the project
Since the successful installation of the architectural canopy in September, the VEC construction team has been working hard to put the finishing touches on the project, including completing a new, high-quality and well-lit footpath and cycleway alongside the University Rose Garden. This new footpath links the bridge to Aberdeen Street and then the Doone Kennedy Aquatic Centre, the Domain and the Bridge of Remembrance, via the soon-to-be-completed City to Gardens way connection.
It is expected that the bridge will be opened in early 2020.
