The Kurilpa Bridge provides a link for pedestrians and cyclists from adjacent to the Gallery of Modern Art in the Cultural Centre Precinct to Tank Street in Brisbane’s CBD.
RCP’s role included the management of all Statutory Approvals with Local, State and Federal Governments.
The bridge has been designed to be architecturally striking yet sympathetic to its prominent location and will complement both landing precincts.
