Brisbane City Council has proposed two new green bridges, from West End to Toowong and from West End to St Lucia. It’s really exciting to see they’re finally investing in more active transport infrastructure. Now we want as many people as possible involved in the conversation so we can make sure the money is spent in the right places.
Council is currently seeking feedback from elected representatives and local residents about the preferred locations of these two bridges. We want to make sure that before we provide official feedback to Brisbane City Council, we have considered all perspectives, and have access to as much data as possible about residents’ preferences. We need your help to make the right choices!
In particular we want to ensure UQ staff and students are part of this conversation. UQ is the second biggest trip generator in Brisbane, and getting as many people as possible there via active and public transport would have massive implications on traffic and congestion for the entire city.
So please, come along to informal conversation on the grass at the Natural Amphitheatre near the Lakes, to learn more about what’s proposed and to give your feedback on Council’s proposed options, whether we need both bridges, and how we can ensure they’re in the best possible locations.
Please ensure you RSVP via this event so we can contact you if there's any changes due to weather or COVID restrictions. Please stay home if you're sick.
If you can’t make it, but are keen to have your say, please vote in Jono’s online poll: www.jonathansri.com/bridgevote and complete Council’s formal consultation survey.
