  1. Nice one, but we (or rather BCC) are going to have to get serious soon
    about building more bridges. A bridge (near this building) from Newfarm to Bulimba would not only be useful, it would also make this an even more attractive location for developers

  2. @#1 100% agree with you. Every major river city in the world has manny bridges for cross river access. Yet I still hear Brisbaners turn their nose up at the idea of spending money on “more useless bridges”. When are we going to become contemporary thinkers?

  3. Not entirely sure how a bridge to Bulimba would help apartments at New Farm other than push car traffic past the front door. I doubt many people buying in New Farm are looking for a quick commute to Murrarie nor is there any substantial shopping in Bulimba.
