BRISBANE | Northbank Riverside Proposal | Pro

A proposal has come out that will see the Expressway along the riverside to be built in front of to hide the view from the otherside of the river. Picture of current situation:

This is a very exciting plan for Brisbane, which is a great city.

Can you tell us a bit more about the plan, how like is it to go ahead?

Has it been approved or when will it go up for approval?

What is planned to go inside the 'Entrepot'?

The plan is put forward at the moment for public consultation. The Premier and Deputy Premier says that the plan is 'likely' to go ahead. It has about 50% support here in Brisbane. The main concern is that it is being built 50m out into the River on pylons. Don't know exactly when the approval would be if it gets approved but igt is most likely to be mid to late this year.

The 'Entrepot' would be basically a grand entrance with monuments and displays celebrating 150 years of Brisbane....I think.
