The Green Bridge
As part of the HOTA Project, a bridge has been built linking HOTA to Chevron Island, making it so much easier for locals and tourists to get here. It also gives us much better links to public transport options on the coastal strip.
The pedestrian and cycle bridge spans 130 metres across the Nerang River, connecting to the Thomas Drive retail and restaurant strip. At the same height as the Chevron West bridge connecting Chevron Island to Bundall Road.
A joint venture partnership between Georgiou Group Pty Ltd and Brady Marine & Civil Pty Ltd was appointed by the City of Gold Coast to design and build the Green Bridge. The design adopts the principles of the voronoi seen throughout the precinct and the facade was designed by acclaimed artist Warren Langley.
The bridge makes a great arrival experience into the HOTA precinct and has an informal seating area and space for a pop-up food cart or performers. It also has Instagram worthy views across the water to HOTA and over to the Surfers Paradise skyline.
Construction began in November 2018 and the bridge was officially opened by City of Gold Coast Mayor, Tom Tate on 2nd Feb 2020.
