New temporary footbridge for Herbert Street in Ipswich open

29/01/2024

​Queensland Rail is pleased to announce the temporary overpass at Sadliers Crossing is open to the community after being successfully installed. 

PLEASE ATTRIBUTE TO QUEENSLAND RAIL HEAD OF SOUTH EAST QUEENSLAND NEIL BACKER:

A team of 20 Queensland Rail structures workers, engineers and contractors fitted the bridge during a planned track closure over the weekend of the 20-21 January with finishing works completed on Monday 29 January. 

We know how important this is to Ipswich locals and with the temporary pedestrian overpass in place, that cross rail connection has been restored. 

We are continuing to progress the design for a new, permanent bridge that meets modern standards, including the required accessibility standards. 

The new bridge will provide an active transport corridor for pedestrians, cyclists, and people with mobility devices, and include a single, trafficable lane for vehicle access during an emergency.

ENDS​
