Designs approved for Isle of Capri Bridge

The Gold Coast Council has approved design work for the Isle of Capri Bridge.

The bridge will undergo a $38 million upgrade in order to reduce congestion, improve safety and encourage sustainable travel options by adding a shared path for pedestrians and cyclists.

A separate bridge will be built next to the existing one, with two east bound traffic lanes and shared pedestrian paths, while the existing bridge will accommodate for the west bound traffic lanes.

The upgrades will also include expansions to the Remembrance Drive intersection and the widening of Via Roma.

The focus of the Capri Bridge upgrade is to reduce traffic congestion but also accommodate for the rising peak periods, with traffic demand through the area set to increase from 19,000 to more than 35,000 vehicles a day by 2031.

Construction is expected to commence in 2021.
