This is a bridge I think will work out well. Hope it starts soon.

Kick-start for $63m footbridge
Tenders will be called this week for the design and construction of a second footbridge over the Brisbane River.
Premier Peter Beattie told State Parliament yesterday the $63.3 million project would complete a pedestrian cycle loop linking the city and South Brisbane via the Goodwill Bridge and Tank Street.
Mr. Beattie said $13.5 million had been allocated to start construction. He had origionally made a commitment in last year's budget to build the Tank Street Bridge.
The Goodwill Bridge has become one of the Government's success stories, with 70,000 people using it each week.
Mr. Beattie said yesterday the Tank Street bridge would link the new Millennium Arts Precinct at South Brisbane to the city.
As part of moves to entice car-mad Brisbane residents out of their vehicles, Brisbane City Council is also building a $55.5 million "green bridge" to carry pedestrians, cyclists and buses between Dutton Park and the University of Queensland.
