Lord Mayor Graham Quirk announced that having secured funding from the federal and state governments, the iconic Riverwalk linking New Farm to Brisbane City will start construction be completed next year.
Says Lord Mayor Graham Quirk:
In its time before being washed downstream in the devastating 2011 floods, the original Riverwalk hosted more than 3,000 cyclists, pedestrians and runners on a daily basis, making it one of the most popular links within Brisbane.
It was an iconic feature of the city, and the completion of these works will help bring it back bigger and better than ever.
The main focuses of the reconstruction project are cost and sturdiness, with the previous floating walkway costing $650,000 annually to maintain. The new construction will see a fixed walkway constructed 3.4 metres above the mean sea level and follow a similar route to the previous structure which will also have a significantly lower maintenance cost, and is expected to be able to survive a one-in-2000 year flood.
When the walkway is completed in mid 2014 it will fill a great hole left by the destruction of the previous bridge, and will make an excellent piece of infrastructure for pedestrians, cyclists and tourists alike.
