“The contract to design and construct the Kangaroo Point Green Bridge is set to be awarded in the coming months, with construction due to start later this year, bringing us even closer to getting residents home quicker and safer with less traffic congestion and more travel options,” he said.

The development application for the Breakfast Creek green bridge was being prepared, he said.
