Brisbane election 2016: Greens propose two new river crossings

Cameron Atfield reports in the Brisbane Times (7.3.16) on developments in the Brisbane City Council election campaign, where the Greens have proposed building two new transport crossings over the Brisbane River.

‘The Greens’ unlikely bid for City Hall has ramped up a gear, with the smallest of the three main parties contesting the Brisbane City Council election announcing a $345 million plan to build two new river crossings.

‘Greens lord mayoral candidate Ben Pennings had already announced plans to turn the Victoria Bridge into a green bridge – a certainty now given both the Labor and Liberal National parties have announced their policies – earlier in the campaign.

‘On Monday, Mr Pennings said the Greens would build two new green bridges – one between Newstead and Bulimba and the other between Toowong and West End – for bus, pedestrian and cyclist access.

‘Mr Pennings said the new crossings would reduce congestion across the city.’
