The Green Bridge
As part of the HOTA Project, a bridge will be built linking HOTA, Home of the Arts to Chevron Island making it easier to get to HOTA from Surfers Paradise.
The pedestrian and cycle link will span 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, it will allow continued access for watercraft.
A joint venture partnership between Georgiou Group Pty Ltd and Brady Marine & Civil Pty Ltd has been appointed by the City of Gold Coast to design and build the Green Bridge pedestrian and cycle connector to Chevron Island.
The design also adopts principles of the voronoi. It provides for an arrival experience into the precinct with an informal seating area and space for a pop-up food cart or performers. It will have views across the water to HOTA and over to the Surfers Paradise skyline.
Construction timeline – November 2018 due for completion in late 2019 with the offical opening planned for Feb 2020.
