New concept design for Bribie Island bridge

Bribie Island’s proposed concept design for a new bridge has been published to the community, which includes two eastbound traffic lanes, a wider active transport path, and two westbound for the existing bridge.

The concept aims to improve traffic flow, better support active transport and provide and alternate options if one bridge becomes cut.

The community can now have their say on concept designs for a new Bribie Island Bridge.

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is currently preparing a business case for the new bridge as part of wider upgrades along Caboolture-Bribie Island Road.

The concept design includes widening the road to four lanes between Bestmann Road East and Benabrow Avenue as well as realigning the Sylvan Beach Esplanade intersection for safer turns.

Community input and technical investigations were taken into account in developing the concept design. Feedback emphasised the importance of improved access, safety, and reduced congestion, with concerns raised about emergency service access and the narrow bike and pedestrian path.

The community is invited to share their thoughts on the proposed concept design through TMR’s online consultation page from today until 11 March 2024.
