Rose Garden Bridge
All-abilities pedestrian and cycle access over Brooker Avenue
Rose Garden Bridge - the new, all-abilities pedestrian and cycle bridge over Brooker Avenue and connecting the city centre with the Domain - is now open to the public.
The bridge is a Transforming Hobart project that was built to enhance Hobart’s pedestrian and cycling network.
It links the city centre from Bathurst Street and across Brooker Avenue to the Domain sporting and recreation facilities, as well as to the Glebe residential area. The bridge was constructed by the City of Hobart, together with VEC Civil Engineering.
The construction complements the existing underpass, which is almost 60 years old. The new bridge is suitable for cyclists, parents with prams, people with wheelchairs and those with limited mobility.
The project included relocation of underground services and construction of a new high-quality, well-lit footpath and bicycle lane alongside University Rose Garden, linking the bridge to Aberdeen Street, Doone Kennedy Aquatic Centre, the Domain and Bridge of Remembrance.
Further minor commissioning works and landscaping will take place at a later date.
A formal opening of the bridge will be conducted once the public gathering restrictions associated with COVID-19 have been lifted.
