Brisbane Riverwalk to be reconstructed

Brisbane City Council is seeking public feedback on five proposed design concepts for the reconstruction of the Riverwalk which was damaged in January’s floods.

The federal and state governments have committed up to $75M (£47M) funding to the Riverwalk replacement. The New Farm Riverwalk runs between the city centre and New Farm to the east.

The floating walkway was originally constructed in 2003 and used by 3,000 cyclists, pedestrians and runners daily. This year’s January floods caused extensive damage to the structure, causing a section to wash away downstream. 

The council is taking feedback until 16 September.

Riverwalk redesign

The five options are:

  • design concept A - floating structure closer to the bank with vessel moorings on the outside
  • design concept B - fixed structure on the original alignment with an opening for vessels and moorings on the bank
  • design concept C - fixed structure closer to the bank with vessel moorings on the outside
  • design concept D - retaining wall, follows general alignment of riverbank, with vessel moorings on the outside
  • design concept E – redesign of original floating Riverwalk
