Village green for QUT-end of Goodwill Bridge
Four new facilities including a cafe and a village green will be developed at the Queensland University of Technology end of the Goodwill Bridge.
The plans were outlined at Tuesday’s Brisbane City Council meeting.
Chairman of Neighbourhood Planning Amanda Cooper said the development would be conducted in partnership with QUT.
“I’d have to commend QUT for partnering with Council on this project. It’s good to see them taking some initiatives to respond to the environment that they live in,” Cr Cooper said.
A QUT Gardens Point Campus road will also be upgraded to improve safety for more than 30,000 people who use the area each week.
“It’s critical that we upgrade the safety of this, particularly the poorly lit road which people are using both night and day,” she said.
Upgrades will include footpath upgrades and a shared zone to make the area more accessible for pedestrians and cyclists.
Cr Cooper said BCC would also seek funding from the state and federal governments to upgrade the Botanic Gardens Riverstage.
“This popular entertainment facility has got the opportunity to be significantly upgraded as well as providing new opportunities for other types of entertainment purposes.”
