On Monday 5 March 2007, the then Premier Peter Beattie announced the preferred tenderer for the Kurilpa Bridge Project.
Baulderstone Pty Ltd, was selected as the preferred tenderer to design and construct the bridge.
With 1500 people moving into South East Queensland each week, Brisbane is now at the centre of the fastest growing urban region in Australia. As the city continues to grow and inner city residential developments flourish, the demand for improved pedestrian and cycle pathways will grow.
Kurilpa Bridge provides an environmentally-friendly and enjoyable walking and cycling pathway to the city from South Brisbane.
It is expected that 36 500 people will cross Kurilpa Bridge each week.
